Military Launches "Trooptube"

I came across this article on internetnews .com about a new website that allows those active in the military to keep in touch with their families.

After blocking youtube and social media sites over a year and a half ago, the Defense Department has come up with TroopTube to allow military personnel to keep in touch with friends and family through a video share website. The website allows users to register as a supporter, military member, or family member, and then share a video.

I think that this is a great support system for our troops and another new social media innovation that will make it easier for people to communicate. While, they do not edit videos for content, the Defense Department does screen the videos for any suspicious content. I think that this will be a very positive thing for the troops and the easier opportunities to connect with their family and friends will hopefully bring a boost in moral.

I think this is a great idea! My brother is also in the military and unfortunately I don't get to see him all the time. Only problem is I hope he has the time to do it.
