Social media and the tragedy in Boston

Yesterday, two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. I first learned about the bombing on Facebook. Then Twitter, then NPR, and then TV. Strangely enough, my television experience is markedly influenced by ubiquitous computing, Internet, networked cameras and video — even Vine! I don’t have a lot to add to the conversation except that we at Biznology are shocked and appalled–our thoughts go out to everyone affected. We’re going to take a day off from talking about digital PR and social media marketing. There’s quite a lot of graphic photos below so please be aware; also, these social media mentions, which span all day yesterday from the time of the event through the afternoon, are in no particular order. Let us take a quiet, pensive, moment to experience emergent news as reflected through the eyes of the social media panopticon . . .
