US Marine Corps Bans Social Networking Sites 202

Q-Hack! writes "Citing security concerns, the United States Marine Corps has issued an order banning access to social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and Twitter on its network for the next year.

The policy for the entire military is somewhat fragmented, as the Army ordered military bases to allow access to social media sites in May."
