- WE can help them understand appropriate use.

(Mark never thought he'd see the day)
- DoD Social Media Hub
- Army Social Media handbook

They also put together a really nice app.

Mark Oehlert showed me CoveritLive. I've seen it used. Need to play with it.

Fear - exposing selves.
Fear - what if people say something bad/stupid/secret? Do you have a phone?
