How private should your Facebook password be?

Facebook issues are in the headlines and have been for months as many talk about whether employers should be allowed to ask for personal account passwords.

Several students at Pueblo Community College agree it's against their rights and add they wouldn't give their passwords out.

Facebook has agreed recently saying user privacy is important.

"Mainly if you're giving out your password they're going to be able to read private messages, which don't always necessarily mean they should be private, but some are," said Eric Tieken, a student at Pueblo Community College. "They don't have the right to have access to it."

With hundreds of millions of users, is there anything that would cause someone to stop using the online social network?

"If it came in between me and a job or some type of conflict that started in my life," said Xavier Johnson-Vialpando, a student at Pueblo Community College.

"If employers probably wanted to use my password honestly," said Rachel Batchelder, a student at Pueblo Community College. "I think that's getting too personal."

Most students agree, personal means personal, but they say they also try to not get addicted to Facebook.
