We’ve heard how prospective employers are checking out your Facebook page to see who your friends are and what kind of activities you might be involved in, and in some cases that has cost people a job.
Well, could your Facebook friends now be affecting your CREDIT? Apparently there are a handful of new companies out there that are analyzing your friends on Facebook to determine whether or not YOU’RE a safe bet for credit. As of right not it won’t affect your actual “credit score” but if creditors determine you associate with a bunch of delinquent deadbeats, it could be the deciding factor as to whether or not you can get that new big screen TV at Best Buy on credit.
Aside from our station Facebook page, I personally have deactivated my Facebook account. Good thing. I was friends with Frankie “Forget To Pay” Renzetti, Georgie, “I’ll Get Ya Next Week” Gufferson, and Alfie “I Ain’t Got It” Sanders.
