US visa applications may soon require five years of social media info

The State Department wants to require all US visa applicants, both immigrant and non, disclose their social media handles to the US government, CNN reports. In documents that the department will file to the Federal Register tomorrow, it proposes that nearly every individual applying for a US visa be required to hand over any social media handles used on certain platforms in the past five years as well as submit any telephone numbers and email addresses used during that same time period.

All the more reason to stay off of social media, but then again, maybe the State Department might ONLY take people that have been on social media for 5 years, which would be a crazy requirement.
