Social media’s impact on disasters [infographic]

As someone who formerly worked at a disaster relief organization during the days of Katrina, the Haiti earthquake, and many other major disasters that didn’t get as much media coverage, I found this infographic, found on Mediabistro, fascinating.  Social media can be such a powerful tool when used to notify loved ones on whether you are safe, provide updates on those who were victims of a disaster, and to help support those affected by a disaster, whether emotionally or financially.  Inspiring.
