Facing Facts

Another example of the real world working hard to keep pace with the virtual world. USA Today reports Israeli defense officials are paying attention to soldiers’ use of Facebook:

A new list of rules aims to prevent soldiers and Defense Ministry employees from revealing classified information on social networking sites. The officials say some soldiers have uploaded pictures of themselves with classified equipment and inadvertently revealed sensitive information.

The rules were released yesterday but haven’t officially been published yet.

It’s so smart for military officials to get out in front of these potential hazards. You never want censorship or restriction, but so many out in the field forget the far reach of the web and can accidentally put themselves and their friends in jeopardy.
