The Sun reports that the U.S. Army has banned soldiers from using popular social networking sites like MySpace and Facebook. The reason is that military officials fear that soldiers may inadvertently leak secrets to the enemy.

The reason that many soldiers use these networks is that internet connectivity is typically available even in remote locations thanks to U.S. technology. However, phone lines and other ways to keep in touch with family back home are often not available.

Many soldiers use these social networks as a lifeline to their family and friends back home. This is sure to hurt the morale of service personnel deployed around the globe, as keeping in touch may not be possible at times.
