Social Media: Prospect and Challenges

NDRF uses social media to reach out to people in distress


Is responding to all SOS tweets, emails, or Whatsapp messages to assure those in trouble that help will arrive soon.

  1. National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) teams are actively involved in tackling the situation arising out of incessant rains in Puducherry and Tamil Nadu over the past few days.
  2. A small office desk at the NDRF headquarters in New Delhi has picked up over 1,000 strands of vital information on social media and internet.
  3. The IT wing of the force, which is being manned round-the-clock by over a dozen NDRF personnel, is posting assurances to every SoS call made online.
