Harnessing the power of real and virtual social networks during disasters

Earth: Fire & Rain, Australian & New Zealand Disaster and Emergency Management Conference, Brisbane, May 2013.

Abstract: The mass media and emergency services organisations routinely gather information and disseminate it to the public. During disaster situations both the media and emergency services require acute situational awareness. New social media technologies offer opportunities to enhance situational awareness by crowd-sourcing information using real and virtual social networks. This paper documents how real and virtual social networks were used by a reporter and by members of the public to gather and disseminate emergency information during the flash flood disaster in Toowoomba and the Lockyer Valley in January 2011 and in the days and weeks after the disaster.
