The Air Force issued a warning to U.S. troops about using social networking sites in war zones. The Air Force said sites such as Facebook have new features that could give away the location of U.S. forces.

It said the applications can identify a person's location and pinpoint it on a map.

The Air Force said that careless use of these services by troops can have devastating impact on operations' security and privacy.
