DoD won't change social media policy PDF Print E-mail
espite the high-profile Jan. 12 hacking incident that resulted in the takeover of U.S. Central Command's official Twitter and YouTube accounts, Defense Department officials have no plans to reevaluate policy on the use of social media, according to a DoD spokesperson.

Currently, official DoD social media accounts are subject to guidance from September 2012 that outlines military members' use of social media. In the wake of the CENTCOM incident, DoD officials called for passwords to be changed at more than 50 Office of the Secretary of Defense-level social media accounts. But no new or special guidance has been issued for the thousands of other official, military-affiliated social media accounts as leaders are reviewing practices, DoD spokesman Col. Steve Warren said in a Jan. 13 press conference.
