The title of the blog posting is "Want to learn how to use social media in a crisis situation?"

It is not an exact apples to apples comparison with emergency management, but the concepts are there:

  • Monitor social media
  • Respond immediately
  • Have a network already in place where you have "electronic relationships
  • With these relationships you can have established what I call "Digital Trust" in what you have to say
  • Be sincere, honest and forthright

Think about how you can translate this example into your own culture and environment.
