This infographic will be well recieved by many prospective employees looking to shore up their social media privacy. The chart was produced, somewhat ironically, by the organization Background Check. As its name suggests, Background Check is an online service that provides the public with the insight and skills necessary to review an individual's history, and also make one's own background more palpable.

The 'Social Network Bill of Rights' infographic outlines common practices of employees when researching the online persona of job candidates. It goes beyond this to advocate for more user control and privacy. The graph points out that many HR departments will snoop a person's Facebook profile before making the decision to hire them. Many people responded to this by making their profiles private. However, now employers are asking prospective employees for access to their profile. The chart argue that this should not be legal, that the privacy employees and people in general should be guaranteed in a social network bill of rights.
