Changes in Disaster Response Through Social Media

Natural calamities are disasters that every citizen must prepare for because an unprepared individual could lose not just properties but also life. Because of this, both public and private sector join hands to provide disaster readiness program among the public. Here are some ways that you could get informed- but the most effective in today’s generation is the social media.


  1. TV, Radio, and newspapers were used to be the source of information about calamities. But it is inefficient because of its limited coverage.
  2. Almost everyone is using social media today. Hence, it becomes a vital channel for communicating significant information about a typhoon, fire or an earthquake.
