Social Media applications for emergency management

This  new effort is intended to identify, share, and comment on the use of  new social media, technology, and communications media in emergency management. We plan to cover applications in the practice of emergency management in the U.S., in other countries, and globally.  We hope the site is of  interest to practitioners, academics, and others.

We will cover  Web 2.0 applications, which include  interactive information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows its users to interact with each other as contributors to the website’s content, in contrast to websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of information that is provided to them. Examples include web-based communities, web applications, social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, and blogs.
