Facebook, Twitter, blogs -- Are you allowed to access those social networking tools at work?

The Army has just released its 2011 social media handbook that offers social media guidance for soldiers, personnel and their families, Mashable reports.

The handbook suggests security tips like setting your privacy setting options to "friends only" and to not reveal your schedule and event locations.

Other top security tips include turning off the GPS function on your smartphones to avoid geotagging. And you should review photos and videos before you've posted online to make sure they don't give away "sensitive" information.
