3.11 and the Social Media Revolution

TSUNAMI AND SOCIAL MEDIA REVOLUTION

The magnitude 9.0 earthquake that struck the Tohoku region of Japan on March 11, 2011 triggered the worst tsunami in history, numerous aftershocks, and radioactive fallout from the destruction of nuclear power plants in Fukushima. However, the instant the earthquake struck social media played a vital role in connecting people and relaying information not only amongst victims of the catastrophe, but also between Japan and the rest of the world. Thousands of cases have been recorded in which social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter were used as a means of life-saving communication right after the disaster.

Looking at the substantial influence these social media tools had on people and also on traditional media outlets such as television, newspapers, and magazines, we can certainly call this phenomenon a social media revolution.
