What is wrong with these people?Do they not understand the impact that social media can have both on morale and additional promotion of the games.
One can understand not talking about famous people, or security issues etc – but not to say that I am at xxx stadium is mad.. they does not give away any real security information.
In a “what to do and what not to do” section, it warns volunteers.
Locog and other govermental & NGOs etc should be setting the example for business – not holding it back another decade

- not to disclose breaking news about an athlete
- not to tell their social network about a visiting VIP, eg an athlete, celebrity or dignitary.
