Hurricane Sandy and the Social Storm She Created

You would be hard pressed in today’s Social Media driven society to not see a spike in activity during major world, national and regional events.  Well Hurricane Sandy was no different, starting days beforehand and continuing even into today ( two weeks later) Facebook and Twitter have been lit up with people talking about Sandy and the effects she has had. Social Media took to the internet for everything from news to personal updates and staying connected when other avenues of contact were not available. In the aftermath many of those people have been using these platforms to coordinate fundraising and community building efforts.  Here is a look at the Social Storm that the aptly nicknamed Frankenstorm, Hurricane Sandy, created.
