Course Description: This interactive presentation provides an introduction to social networking for Department of Defense (DoD) information system users. The presentation acknowledges the positive aspects of social networking, but also familiarizes users with some of the risks associated with social networking services, especially as military, civilian, or contractor members of the DoD. Particular emphasis is placed on the guidance for and limitations on personal use of social networking on DoD information systems. Practical experience is used to assist users with making informed choices on issues encountered when creating an online profile on a fictional social networking service. This training concludes with a brief summary of the dos and don'ts of social networking for DoD members, particularly when using government computers. The information in this product can also benefit user's friends and family members.
