In a recent blog post that announced the new resource, Facebook said the guide is “an easy-to navigate online handbook detailing everything from privacy settings, to groups, to Operational security and more -– all tailored for today’s 21st century military.”
The blog post goes on to explain how the guide is broken down into different sections beginning with the basics of Facebook, its applications, set-up and messaging. For seasoned users, the guide also details how the military is utilizing Facebook to better connect unit leaders, service members, spouses and family members — especially during deployments.
Common misconceptions about privacy and security are also debunked and clarified. Military spouses can also review the guide for Facebook resources on the ever-challenging realm of employment.
Facebook also has a blog post co-authored by Blue Star Families that features stories shared by fans of the U.S. Military Facebook page and other military-related pages.
In the past week, in order to get ready for the launch, Facebook asked fans to share personal stories about how the social networking site has helped them keep in contact with loved ones all around the world.
