US Army Social Media Handbook

Discussion in 'US' started by Bad CO, Jan 21, 2011.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

    Interesting to see how the US deals with the reality that social media is now part of everyone's lives.

  2. Interesting. Much more about (as you'd expect) official presences with very little about the main risk area - personal pages. Still, better than the UK MOD guidance I've seen.

    This is worrying though (p34):

    Sort of implies that it will be in the more-or-less near future ...
  3. That handbook, or something very similar is now circulating on DII (UK military RESTRICTED IT system) as a powerpoint presentation. I've been sent it and my Unit has circulated it as an example of best practice. Like the US, we too have no end of (usually) young soldiers who never seem to think before they upload photos or information onto social networking sites.
  4. I'm not sure how prevalent this is but on a friends FB page.

    He's in their Media Ops equivalent though, so I guess he is more savvy than most.

  5. 'What did you do in the Third Gulf War Grandad?'
