A Glassdoor just user reported that it displayed her name beside her employer reviews despite her desire to be anonymous.

Did Glassdoor deliberately display her name? Was it user error? Was there a technical snafu? We don’t know. But it seems likely that Glassdoor’s acquisition of social networking site, Fishbowl, has caused it to collect personally identifiable information (PII) directly from its users and indirectly from unnamed, third parties. And that data is now accessible via subpoenas and hacks.

Join Cohosts of the Inside Job Boards and Recruitment Marketplaces Podcast, Peter M. Zollman of AIM Group and Steven Rothberg of College Recruiter, as we learn from Aaron Mackey, Free Speech and Transparency Litigation Director with the Electronic Frontier Foundation, about how Glassdoor might be shifting from being a powerful privacy advocate into a potential source of very sensitive information about its millions of users.
