Top level military review for web 2.0

The Pentagon’s chief information officer is conducting an agency-wide review of the use of popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. Officials are trying to balance the benefits of allowing the use of social networking on recruiting, public affairs and troop morale, against the potential security risks.

Defense Secretary Gates gets a report on ‘web 2.0′ at the end of this month, and department-wide policy is expected out in late September.
