Social Media and the Boston Marathon Bombings

Sharing is caring!

The United States, if not the world, was rocked this past week when the Boston Marathon was bombed. The past week has consisted of a nationwide manhunt to catch the suspects, who were successfully apprehended within the week. When I say nationwide, I mean nationwide. Social media sites, like Reddit and Twitter, became a source for information for many people, sometimes before traditional news stations would release official reports.

While this eventually would help in the catching of the culprits, there were a few interesting hiccups and facts caused by people’s reliance on social media that were reported on that I think you should watch:

Our thoughts and prayers are still with everyone affected by this horrific attack not just on the Boston Marathon, but on our country. God bless Boston, and God bless America.
