Check Out the Military's Social Media Guidance Docs!

The U.S. military has been proactive and on the front line in leveraging social media and other online technologies. In August 2011, the Army released version two of their United States Army Social Media Handbook (you can read the book in the embedded frame below or follow the link to download it from Slideshare.net). And more recently, the Marines published an online handbook of social media principles: The Social Corps. Each publication provides a great model for other agencies working on providing guidance for their own employees. So far, on Slideshare, the Army's document has received almost 93,000 views and 4,700 downloads.
