I'd refuse to work for a company that asks that info. I wouldn't give anything out, even something as inconsequent as my Craigslist account password.
I can't be alone on this and my feeling is that these companies would miss out on decent talent and get stuck with a few extra low performers (desperate for work types).
I don't have issues with employers researching your profiles. Anything you put out there is fair game.

I guess these kinds of things happen when there is a glut of potential employees and resumes submitted for jobs. That employers are going to look for not only an employee that is going to the job well, but will also represent the company well.
However this philosophy of asking for user names and passwords is not the right way to go about doing it. If you want to know my background, do the background check (only with my permission) and leave it at that.
The only way a potential employer or current employer will get any of that information from me is via a court order.
What do you think would happen if you walked into an interview, and when it was done, you asked the interviewer for the companies financial records, incorporation paperwork, and the backgrounds of all members of leadership? They would look at you like you just introduced them to running water.
The whole deal of wanting to come into your home and scan your personal computer is WAY over the line.
I'm not giving out any passwords, let alone letting someone into my home to check out my computer. I have personal documents and other assorted important items on my computer that NOBODY is getting their hands on.
I wouldn't ask for passwords, but I DO search for the people on facebook when they apply. And I did a search for a candidate last fall who applied for a job for snow. I found out the dude had been arrested and convicted of stealing from a former employer and immediately cut him out of the herd.
I gave up facebook for lent, and I'm seriously considering dumping it permanently when lent is over. I was on there on sunday and there's nothing interesting about that thing at all anymore. I was hoping giving it up for lent would wean me off it and it worked.
