Social Media and Crisis Workshop

Date: 27 April 2011 Time: 09.00 am - 17:30pm

Venue: ZiF Bielefeld, Germany

As recent events vividly document, crisis situations engender intensive information flows not only for official and non-governmental emergency response agencies and the media, but also amongst members of the public. People affected by natural and composite disasters, or slow motion disasters such as climate change or soil erosion, their colleagues, friends and relatives, and those who may have helpful knowledge increasingly use social media (Facebook, Twitter) to communicate and make sense of events. This one day workshop focuses on one particular phenomenon of social media use in crises: 'collective intelligence'.
