Leaders are calling on servicemembers, Department of Defense (DoD) employees and families to take a more proactive role in social media. Potential foreign adversaries are using social media to make threats toward servicemembers. A Soldier within the U.S. Army Garrison Bavaria footprint recently received messages on a private Facebook page deemed by investigators as malicious and aggressive. Be smart and keep a low profile. If you or someone you know is in receipt of threatening or malicious social media messaging, you can submit an online report at iSalute. To learn more on how to protect you and your family on social media, visit the Army's Social Media Handbook or the Army Cyber Command's cybersecurity awareness factsheets.
