Major societal events such as the recent Arabic spring, international marches against the current economical crisis and the recent disasters in Norway or at the Pukkelpop festival in Belgium, are proving the need and the importance of critical infrastructures, resilience of networks, and the use of social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

When communication channels such as GSM break down, family and friends can continue to be connected. Either Wifi, or when the communication picks up again, all tweets are being forwarded.
Pictures on site are being taken and broadcasted, shared in the world even before press and traditional media can participate.

This is a great evolution, which we fully support and also companies and critical infrastructures should take this into consideration when discussing the impact of social media on their corporate networks.
