Here’s a “living in the future” stat from a Red Cross survey: 69 percent of people said they expect that they’ll get help if they send out an SOS on social media.

Within an hour.

I heard that amazing stat in a training session for Social Media in a Crisis. This is not so crazy as it sounds: In an emergency, voice and data traffic often locks up tight. Twitter can work on text messages, and I guess you can sometimes get wi-fi in a hurricane.

So to that end, lots of emergency management agencies have begun monitoring Twitter and Facebook. You can sign up as a Red Cross Digital Volunteer if you’d like to help out with this work. They train people to look for distress calls and collate intel from the ground. They ask you get some training and sign up for 4-hour shifts.

I mean, we’ve all heard of the mighty works of Anonymous, especially in Steubenville. But if you want to get involved online, but you don’t have 733t hacking skills (or don’t want to risk jail), here’s another option for you.
