I generally don’t have much of a problem with social networks. They are what they are and people are social creatures. Where it tends to become a problem is when it intersects with military networks for example. A problem that is all to real for the Brits.
From Sky News:
The MoD refused to comment on whether the leaks related to operational issues and what disciplinary action was taken.
MoD personnel need clearance from their bosses before publishing anything which relates to operations, or offers opinions on Defence activity.
Staff are also forbidden from speaking on behalf of the MoD in relation to controversial, sensitive or political matters.
The leaks have occurred 16 times in the last 18 months according to the article. And that’s just the ones that we’re aware of.
