YouTube and Crisis

Posted by eschaub on August 10, 2012

During times of natural disasters, like the earthquakes that struck Japan and Haiti, many people turn to YouTube to find footage of the crisis that is unfolding. YouTube is aware of this, and it now making sure that viewers are getting the most up to date videos. The Crisis One Response box apparently offers “streams of verified social content”, with information and videos of crisis or disasters. I’m not sure if this betters lookiloos, or people who are actually concerned. I guess time will tell.
