    of interviewing job applicants, looking at transcripts, calling references, reading your recommendation letters, and asking our secretary if she thought you were a prick?

    Yeah.  None of that stuff works as well as seeing the random bullshit you put on your Facebook page.

    (I mean, okay, I'd kind of like to know if somebody were, I don't know, spewing hateful racist garbage on their Facebook page, particularly if my company employed people whose skin color didn't match their view of the Master Race, but 99 percent of the time there's not going to be anything relevant to a hiring decision there.)
