Social media allow users to share and disseminate information from anywhere around the world. Geofeedia’s CEO and co-founder, Phil Harris sees the dramatic increase of social media content being uploaded daily as a powerful tool to prevent and respond to location security such as in the airport. In a statement, he revealed that they develop technology to organize and strain information that can be of value to aviation security.
This location-based social media monitoring is expected to improve awareness among security officials in case of possible threats. The information filtered through social media is real-time for easy and fast tracking.
