Special information needs of young people


Young people (18 - 24) have also been found to have different informational habits, as they are often informed by "inadvertence", through social media while they were not seeking information (Dagnaud 2016). This implies that they may be developing different ways of getting information during a disaster. The need for information not only depends on the type of disaster and the pace of it (Wein et al. 2016), but also on cultural factors.
