The Marines recently banned soldiers from using and posting information to social media sites such as MySpace, Facebook and Twitter. This is for 2 reasons. 1. They fear the insecurity of these sites may facilitate malware on government computers 2. Leaking military data. In many situations, for years and years, due to secrecy and strategy issues, military personnel have long been barred from informing friends and family of their locations or missions they may be on in handwritten letters, email and over the telephone. These measures are obvious to prevent leaks that would impede the mission and the safety of the soldiers.
