Social Media and Japan Earthquake
My heart goes out to those who experienced the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, as well as those who suffered in a lower-magnitude earthquake in Southwest China. A huge natural disaster like this will certainly affect people’s lives, a place’s travel, tourism, and hospitality industry, and even a country’s economy (actually, everything!). Today, however, I would like to share a Fox News video and talk about how social media could be useful in helping human beings go through a disaster.
- Japanese share pictures and updates on social media, keeping the global village informed with what is happening n Japan.
- People use Google People Finder to locate their relatives and friends in Japan.
- People support one another and share their thoughts on social media.
- Non-profit organizations raise money to help those in need on social media.
