WASHINGTON — Social Networking Sites, like Facebook and Twitter, are software applications that connect people and information in spontaneous, interactive ways.

While SNS can be useful and fun, they can provide adversaries, such as terrorists, spies and criminals, with critical information needed to harm a person or disrupt a mission.

All personnel should practice operational security to recognize and protect critical information from an adversary.

•Keep sensitive, work-related information off a profile.

•Keep personal plans, schedules and location data to yourself.

•Protect the names and information of coworkers, friends and family members.

•Tell friends to be careful when posting photos and information about you and your family.
