OTOH, once everyone is much more public, maybe this changes the game? For example, my last company hired a VP who had a zero web footprint. I took that as a negative and it turned out that the person was incompetent to do the job.

It is possible that what one's public reputation, as long as it is not really bad, may be necessary to get hired at all. That the age of anonymity, that most city dwellers have become used to, is drawing to a close. It is rather like growing up in a village - everyone knows who you are.

For the people with bad adult reputations - I welcome that sunshine to illuminate who they are so that they can be avoided. These people thrive on being able to con the next person or organization. Reducing the information asymmetry about them would be socially beneficial.

This seems like a great opportunity for startups like REPUTATION DEFENDER. They are really at the cutting edge of helping the facebook generation deal with the future implications of this...
