the weather and social media

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Op-3CuN4Dq4

whilst the news about our weather hasnt been great – one of the best uses of social media has emerged… and that is – the spreading of important news via social media platforms.

Queensland authorities, the Victorian Police and Weather Bureau have certainly displayed their talents in these areas this past 24 hours.

as have many other emergency services. they have certainly grasped the full capability and use of this new platform to expert levels and it is inspiring to see.

of course – as with everything – there are limitations. not being able to charge mobile fones being the main offender, but seriously…it wont take the world long to sort that issue out.
