As I’m sure you have heard, or at least wondered about, privacy concerns and  commercial use of personal data are becoming a big concern on Facebook. Some of us have known about the vulnerabilities for many years, which is one of the reasons that none of the ‘good stuff’ regarding the USS William H. Bates (SSN 680) and her crew gets posted on Facebook.

While we are always alert to security and classified information issues that could compromise today’s submariners, (not today, ISIS!) not to mention the promises we made back in the day, there are lots of photos and stories that are best not made public for the sake of our spouses, family, and friends, not to mention our own personal and business reputations.

This, as you can surely imagine, is the primary reason we take security on the www.ssn-680.org website so seriously.

Finally, we have found a social media organization called MeWe, that seems to treat privacy concerns as seriously as we do. Consequently, I am announcing the establishment of a MeWe group, the USS William H. Bates (SSN 680) Association, that is open and active as of today.

It is a selective group, meaning admin permission is required to join, and based on the promises of the owners and developers of MeWe, what happens in the group, stays in the group.
