THE BRONX - A new Internet privacy bill could stop your boss from seeing your personal Facebook page.

Bronx Councilwoman Annabel Palma is introducing legislation to the City Council that would keep employees from being required to Facebook friend their bosses.

However, employers would still be able to look at information that is open to the public, as well as anything that's stored on company computers.

Reaction to the bill is mixed on the streets of the Bronx, with some arguing that Facebook should be kept separate from the workplace, and others who disagree.
