The U.S. Army has launched a new social media website for Army personnel.
U.S. (WiredPRNews.com) – The U.S. Army has launched a new social media website to facilitate safer correspondence between Army personnel. As reported by LiveScience.com, milBook, which is part of the milSuite network that is protected by a firewall to prevent outside prying, provides personnel with a centralized unit for social networking.
Todd Miller, an Army contractor, is quoted in the report as stating of the site, “People across the DoD can find professional working groups on various programs and efforts and join within seconds… MilBook not only connects people, it connects those people to military topics so that ideas and information are shared across the Armed Services.”
As noted in the report, milBook, which in some ways is similar to Facebook, has attracted 18,000 users since its launch in October.
