Do emergency services monitor social media? They should.
I thought I would share this (which was shared with me) from Read Write Web. The American Red Cross published a report on social media use during emergencies and disasters. The graph below shows that 74% of people who submit requests for help via social media expect requests to be answered within an hour.
I thought this sort of linked up to my previous post on the importance of responding quickly. Only this time, someone’s life could depend on it.
