A nice, English mum sits down at her computer and checks Facebook. Her son, a soldier in the British Army, has sent her a message saying he’s OK and ready for some new orders in Afghanistan. She writes up a public status update relaying his message. Her doorbell rings, and she has a nice cup of tea with a masked terrorist.
That’s what happens in a new YouTube video from the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense, which ends with the tagline, “Think before you share.” It’s part of a campaign against careless social media talk, according to the UK Guardian.
