Checking in to Foursquare from outer space? Awesome. Checking in from a war zone? Impressive, but not a good idea, according to the U.S. Air Force.
A warning posted to the Air Force's internal website tells troops not to use location-based services such as Foursquare, Facebook Places, Loopt and Gowalla from the battlefield, the Associated Press reports. The notice says that "careless use of these services by airmen can have devastating operations security and privacy implications."
