Managing Super Storm Sandy & the Social Media Storm

Hurricane Sandy hit the shores of New Jersey at 8 p.m. Oct. 29, 2012. In the days and hours leading up to its landfall, Sandy affected 24 states with tropical storm force winds. The strength of the storm and the subsequent damage to the East Coast generated significant buzz on social media leading to the spread of both accurate and inaccurate information. This Social Media Roundup analyzes what can go wrong on social media when social media managers fail to check the facts before posting content (click on image to view the roundup).
