Facebook Privacy Settings

Published by U.s. Africa Command

The use of social networking services like Twitter, Facebook and MySpace has
grown tremendously in popularity over the recent years.

Recently, the DOD published directive guidance stating that access to these
social networking services will be allowed from government computers. The
main intent of this decision is, of course, for official use. DOD will allow
official organizations to have a presence on sites such as MySpace, Facebook
and Twitter. These official presences will need to be coordinated with base
public affairs to ensure the messages and information are correct.

The use of these services both at work and at home requires strong attention
to Operations Security.

The ease and speed of information flow make it very easy to post too much or
the wrong kind of information. Proper use of security settings on the Web
sites is important, but there is no guarantee of security.

Pages can be hacked, settings can be changed and company security policies
can change. Never post any information that you wouldn't be comfortable
posting to any public venue. When posting information about work, always be
conscious of what pieces of information you are revealing.

Remember that small pieces of unclassified information can quickly build
into classified information. The majority of intelligence obtained and used
by terrorist organizations comes from unclassified, public sources. Don't
make things easy for them.

Online social media sites can be great information tools in both your
personal and professional lives. Just don't make the mistake of forgetting
your basic OPSEC principles.
