When phone lines are down, but the internet is up Social Networking is saving lives. There are many critics of social networking, but when people needed supplies or medical service Twitter was the way to get their messages out.
Here are some examples from this article:
“My sis family at 78th St155-22 Howard Beach Queens NY 11414, water rising 12 ft need help. 1st floor drowned, kids scared,” @rsindh tweeted.
This is wonderful! Social Networking has become very helpful especially Twitter because of its short message format. I encourage more people to use Twitter and other micro-blogging sites to keep in touch with the world trends.
