Air Force Warns Troops About Facebook Feature
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
The U.S. military is asking troops to be cautious when using social media -Facebook, Foursquare and other sites include features that announce your location. They can even pinpoint you on a map, which may not be ideal, especially if you happen to be in a war zone at the time. The U.S. Air Force is not banning these sites, but it is telling personnel to be careful. They should consider their own privacy, as well as the needs of their own security.
