Hurricane Irene Teaches Lessons about Keeping in Contact with Social Media

By  |  Published 

August 29, 2011 – Since the dawn of social media, users have been finding new and innovative ways to work it into our everyday lives. In times of natural disasters, like Hurricane Irene which recently struck the eastern U.S., it has been used to alert family and friends that their loved ones are okay.

Social media isn’t just about posting fun videos and updating friends on your new kitten’s latest antics – it’s about sharing important content. In recent years, we’ve seen social media used for serious business, including presidential inaugurations, play-by-plays for sporting events, and locating loved ones in times of crisis.

As evidenced recently by Hurricane Irene (not to mention that earthquake last week in Virginia), social media is now one of the fastest ways to get important news out to millions of people at once. The Weather Channel’s new social campaign integrated their Twitter and Facebook accounts to make sure the latest storm news was easily available. Many local governments used their social networking powers to update residents of the latest evacuation procedures and emergency information.
