Social media’s strengths and weaknesses as a news gathering and distribution device before and during Sandy?

Would love to hear what social sites you relied on before, during and after Hurrican Sandy and why.  There's much discussion about social media's potential as a public utility, which in my opinion,  isn't quite there yet.

You're right, it isn't quite there yet, thanks mostly to losers who pollute the social stream with lies and misinformation. (Of course, that also describes some of the mainstream media.)

 

Twitter is my preferred social site for fast-breaking news.
