In Southern Punjab of Pakistan, social media play a very significant role to create awareness is every aspects of life. When I would say social media bridge up communities during incidents then I must share some personal experiences here for the great role of social media.
In 2010, a huge flood disaster came through in Indus delta right from north to south. No doubt flood came every year in Pakistan but that flood was much horrible. In results it completely damaged agrarian belt and economy as well. If we go through victims comments, there were no governmental warnings there to put necessary action in time to save human losses.
In results, social media create awareness to people how they could take preventive action measures to minimize chances of losses. They can make some committees to convey masses voice to government authorities to secure damages.Image
