"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Employer should not have access to any aspects of your personal life that you do not make public. Any public aspects are reasonably valid as factors to consider.

Basically agree with Tom on the first part that employer should access to review any portion of your personal life which they can access without extraordinary means or taking extraordinary steps to get such material.

In regard to the oversight part of the question, an employer has the right to specify consequences of any behavior that they consider offensive  or detrimental to their business. An employee in effect signs a contract on accepting an offer. They are as much bound by such an agreement as the employer.

We 'may' all agree, can pursue that later.
Some employers hire own private detectors to evaluate (Spy)
I tend to side with privacy, such as "god invented doors for a reason
But I also side with public right-to-know.
Juggle.

It appears too many of business really seek too much where it comes to social media.
But where employee opts for headline news, identifies self with company, the eyes don't tear of pity when company opts for pink slip.
