Why You Need to Follow the Military’s Social Media

There is nothing the social media team at CPG loves more than connecting with all our friends and followers across all of our social media outlets. We consistently blog, share fun and interesting CPG events on Facebook, and tweet from our favorite conferences. Clearly social media has become an important part of our lives (and yours) in the last decade.

What about the Military? Did you know the Department of Defense (DoD) has a vast array of social media used to connect with followers? We highly recommend the following avenues for staying connected with our DoD partners via social media.
