Future Tech Chat #25: Social Media in Crisis


On Future Chat this week, we talked about how social media and the Internet can be used and abused during crises and emergencies. We discussed how social media was important to us during the 100 year flood in Calgary last year, and during the Ottawa shooting this past week, as well as in the protests going on in Hong Kong right now.

We talk about this in the aftershow, weirdly it was written 2 years ago today.

You can also check out the next episode of Future Sci Chat, live on YouTube next Saturday at 12:30 PM Eastern. We'll be discussing transportation and engine science, it will be an excellent episode.
Be sure to direct any questions you might have before, during, and after the show to Google+, Facebook or Twitter, or send them via email to futurechats@gmail.com.
