Where were you when Southern California experienced their power outage last Thursday? Where did you turn to receive updated information and news updates?
The scope of Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets have become so widespread that consumers often turn to the web, rather than major news organizations, to keep an eye on current events or major news events.
I know that I personally checked Facebook regularly to find out if anyone had any power, where exactly people were experiencing the blackout, and more. Another interesting thing I noticed is that for people that were stranded with no way to fill their car up with gas, it was their method of reach help to get a ride home or a place to stay and more.
