Trust but Verify Social Media Models for Disaster Management
Mehta, A., Bruns, A., and Newton, J. (2017). Trust, but Verify: Social Media Models for Disaster Management. (Abstract only.) Disasters. 41(3):549-565.
The authors examine three models for using social media in disaster management: information gathering, quasi-journalistic verification, and crowdsourcing. They discuss how emergency management can verify content to maximize public trust and encourage the use of social media after disasters.
