Summary
  • "This innovative book sets itself at the crossroads of several rapidly developing areas of research in legal and global studies related to social computing, specifically in the context of how public emergency responders appropriate content on social media platforms for emergency and disaster management.

The collaboration was made possible by EU's FP 7 Project Slandail (# 607691, 2014-17)"--

Microblogs and social networking pages have become a mainstay of data dissemination in the public space and are heavily used by both citizens and authorities in times of crisis; they have been used, for example, by police forces to disseminate and seek information about missing people, and by hospitals seeking blood. Twitter carries the first messages of victims of atrocities (Paris 2015, Berlin 2016, London 2017 and Manchester 2017), Facebook is used to find missing relatives. Vast quantities of personal information floods microblogs and social networking pages: this data helps authorities to deploy resources where the need is greatest and yet this data can be used in whole sale surveillance as well. Social computing systems are now part and parcel of our interactions with others in good times and bad"--
