Abstract

The use of
social media to communicate in cases of emergencies has gained more and more importance
in recent years. Studying such web and social media data is not only a
methodological challenge, but ethical questions also arise. In this article we
describe some of those ethical issues and our reflections with a focus on
dissemination of results based on the RESCUE project.
