The New York Times online reports that a Facebook page has been set-up to display photos and documents found after the tornadoes that recently hit America’s south. It’s become a place for survivors and those affected by this horrible event to gain support and also features comments from well-wishes. A touching story which shows the diverse way we can utilise social media sites. The page is titled “Pictures and Documents found after the April 27, 2011 Tornadoes”.
