Being a previous intern with the Red Cross, I thought this would be great information for people to know.  Social media is being used in many different ways, and it’s evolving rapidly.  Most organizations primarily utilize Facebook and Twitter to reach out to their audiences.  Then there are other industries such as retail that utilize up and coming social media platforms like Pinterest to better market products to their consumers.  

So how does emergency response utilize social media?  This articlegoes into detail with visual examples on how disaster relief organizations like the Red Cross use social media to keep their audiences up to date with subjects such as:

-Disaster safety procedures

-Events taking place (CPR Classes, workshops, blood drives)

-Updates on disasters that occur

I believe these organizations utilize social media effectively to keep their audiences up to speed with everything that is happening with disasters and response procedures.  To these organizations, I say thank you for your support.

Thanks for reading my blog and be sure to follow.  Tune in Wednesday when I post a few of my favorite music tracks from video game titles both current and nostalgic.  Thanks again.
