The growth of geolocation-based social networks and mapping leads to more efficient gathering and dissemination of accurate information and rapid response in the most affected areas, which may significantly reduce damage in emergency situations. These services collect information that can serve as a major source of understanding dimensions of an emergency. In this paper, the use of geolocation-based social networks and services in emergency situations is discussed, because timely, accurate, and clear communication is the main prerequisite for a valid response to such conditions.
