The Contradictions of Social Media Crowdsourcing in Crises Management of War-torn Societies

Authors:
Khaled Al Omoush

Keywords: social media crowdsourcing; usefulness; call for peace; wisdom; truth; sense of community

Abstract:
This research aims to investigate the contradictions of social media crowdsourcing in crisis management in war-torn societies incorporating five intrinsic paradoxes. These contradictions were derived from the literature and practices of social media crowdsourcing in Syria. It concluded that these contradictions represent profound influential factors on the value of social media crowdsourcing in such crises. The identification and analysis of such contradictions enhances the efforts of reinforcing the positive interactions and diminishing the negative practices to support the value of social media crowdsourcing in crisis management. Furthermore, the research presents technical and ethical solutions to enhance the participation value of social media crowdsourcing.
