Governor Chris Christie recently signed new legislation that places New Jersey on a growing list of states that prohibit private employers from requesting or requiring current or prospective employees to disclose their usernames, passwords, or any other access information for any “personal account” on a social media site, such as Twitter and Facebook.

These states include Arkansas, California, Colorado, Illinois, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.
