THE USE of IT - MEDIA CONVERGENCE
CROWDSOURCING via SOCIAL NETWORKING MEDIA DURING MERAPI ERUPTION VOLUNTEER COORDINATION POSTS (3000 persons in 2010 eruption) DISTRIBUTION OF FOLLOWERS ( accounts in 2010 eruption)
Distribution of IDP Camps in 2010 THE ROLE OF SOCIAL MEDIA IN MEETING THE NEEDS BETWEEN IDP’S AND DONORS
Lesson Learned COLLABORATIVE INVOLVEMENT of ALL STAKEHOLDERS CONVERGENCE of TECHNOLOGY/MEDIA SPEED, ACCURACY and TRUST → PUBLIC VERIFICATION
AN IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER : “ It is not technology which will change the world, rather than the People who use it.” “This qualitative fact begs for more multidisciplinary research into the use of Social Media in Disasters"
