Social Media has become a terrorist's best ally and worst enemy. In the aftermath of an attack on critical infrastructure, terrorist organizations take credit and celebrate the attacks, an effect that becomes raw and powerful to all social media users. In response to an attack, the majority of social media users give their sympathy, prayers and support to victims of an attack. This report analyzes the potential power that social media can have with resilience building by showing ways governments can educate and disseminate information in a cost-effective and timely manner to all parts of the world. This report uses real case studies and data compiled from different events to better support its thesis.
