The US state department announced that people seeking a US visa will be required to disclose their social media information like usernames, previous Email addresses and Phone numbers.

The change which was suppose to be implemented in March 2018, is expected to affect about 15 million applicants to enter United States each year.
Certain diplomatic and official visa applicants will be exempted, and individuals who have never used social media will also be exempted from the requirements.
