The California State Senate on Tuesday approved a bill protecting the privacy of college students who use social-media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, according to the Los Angeles Times. The bill would prohibit the state’s public and private colleges from requiring or requesting that students divulge their passwords or other information about their social-media accounts. It would also prevent colleges from taking disciplinary action against students who refused to comply with such requests. Similar legislation has recently passed in other states. The California bill will now be sent to the governor for his signature.
