Professor Karen Freberg: "Rise of Digital Disruption: The Benefits and Challenges in Crisis and News Coverage Via Social Media"

The rapid growth of social media challenges crisis communicators to disseminate safety messages to affected audiences quickly and in a manner that promotes maximum compliance. Not only do individuals and organizations communicate differently during a crisis, but they are also perceived very differently. Karen Freberg, Professor of Communication, will discuss the major benefits and challenges in social media strategies in crisis as well as future implications and best practices.
