What's the password?

"Trend of employers asking for Facebook passwords questioned":

Beyond the examples of government agencies—particularly law enforcement officers and 9/11 dispatchers—“there is little to suggest that typical employers are bearing down on applicants to open up their Facebook pages,” Kauffman wrote.

He continued: “But as Valdes’ report ricocheted around the Web, his anecdote morphed into a trend, and the trend became a growing trend, and overnight, an Internet/media monster was born.”

Shel Israel noticed the monster. In a blog post on Forbes, he called it the great non-issue, pointing out that all of the incidents cited by the AP and others are more than a year old and, as Kauffman noted, mostly involve government jobs.

I don't really see the problem to begin with.

"What is your Facebook password?"

"I forget."

Problem solved.

"I forget."

You spelled "fuck you" wrong.
