The Ministry of Defence has launched a campaign today aimed at encouraging Service personnel and MOD civilians to carefully consider possible repercussions before posting information on social networking sites.

Called 'Think Before You...', the guidance will be incorporated into Phase 1 training when applicants first join the Services and into other mandated training materials for serving personnel.
