Keeping Families & Personnel Safe On Social Media

You can never be too careful:
Social networking sites are great for keeping in touch with family and friends, and letting the world know what you’re up to. The ‘Online engagement guidelinesmake it clear that we encourage the safe and responsible use of social networking sites.

This page contains guidance on how to stay safe and to think about what you post online. Remember, that there may be those who use such sites for unsavoury reasons.
Be extra careful if you have identified yourself as being a member of the military or an MOD civilian.

There is a short guide to appropriate social media behaviour for defence personnel.
You can also download the Personal security online (PDF, 1.55MB, 11 pages) file which contains some more detailed guidance.

There are video clips and lots more information on the GOV.UK website.
