Social Media can be a powerful tool to help keep in touch with people during a crisis situation, and we at Social Media Club NO would like to take this opportunity to share and discuss how you and your workplace can integrate Web 2.0 tools into your Crisis/Disaster Protocol.
We will be featuring 3 panelists that have embraced Web 2.0 tools as it relates to hurricane preparedness:
Stanford Rosenthal of www.levees.org will discuss how they realized that there was a conversation going on outside of their site and how they integrated tools to embrace and engage in the community dialogue and comment. Not to mention, the "reputation management" that comes into play if and when you have to go up against a Goliath like the Corps of Engineers.
Robert X. Fogarty of www.evacuteer.org, a volunteer recruitment and management organization will discuss how they are utilizing new tools to manage volunteers and to help organize the evacuation process.
Kayla Castille, of www.WDSU.com will discuss how the media is changing and embracing new web tools to track real time events and developments, particularly in crisis situations.
