Indian Army personnel prohibited from social networking


The Indian Army has issued a directive to all it's personnel to stay away from social networking according to reports. The Army personnel have been asked to refrain from using social networking sites such as twitter, Facebook, orkut etc and have also been directed not to join any of these sites in future.

The Indian Army had asked it's personnel not to post their pictures in uniform over any of the social networking sites. Pictures of the Indian Army Weaponry were also banned. But now, the Army has directly asked it's personnel not to use social networking.

This will lead to information compromise, according to the Army sources and will also lead to sensitive information being leaked unintentionally over social networking sites. The social networking ban directive has been issued to all 36,000 officers and other army personnel in a total capacity of 1.13 million army personnel.

In addition to this, the officers violating the social networking refrain directive are liable to face stringent action.
