TYLER - Love it or hate it, Facebook is a way of life now. More than 250 million people use it and it's become a force.

As the king of social media, more companies are using that as a way to help them out. The feds are allowing Social Intelligence Corporation the green light to archive the last seven years of an applicants Facebook post and it's stirring up a controversy.

East Texans we spoke with tell KETK, "It's no body's business about my life or anything else."
"I think it should really only bother you if you have something to hide."


The issue, according to the report is privacy. Depending on whom you are dealing with, Facebook users can have different privacy settings which can limit what others can see and thus could potentially stop an employer glancing over the pictures from that crazy vacation years ago or the one's with you downing margaritas.

Nevertheless, one person we spoke with tells KETK if you put the information out there, you should be the one responsible.

"Well the thing is if its public information, it's public information. It's up to the person who actually post it to think about it."
