The Social Networking Online Protection Act (SNOPA), introduced last April, is being reintroduced by Representatives Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.), Jan Schakowsky (D-I.L.) and Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.). The legislation is meant to stop a trend that has gained steam over the last year -- employers and schools asking for Facebook and social media passwords of applicants, employees and students.
