Cai Shaojie, Wang wanru


In recent years, major disasters have occurred frequently, with sudden floods, rampant epidemics, and typhoons... Faced with sudden disasters, the affected population is often caught unprepared. Under the background of “Internet +”, the speed of information circulation has improved, but the news that the material needs of the disaster victims are not effectively met still often appears in the public’s view. In order to improve the efficiency of disaster information dissemination and enable the efficient distribution of related materials, this paper discusses this issue based on the gatekeeper theory of communication science. With a view to tracing the source and clarifying the reasons for the low efficiency and poor effect of disaster mutual aid information dissemination under the background of “Internet +”, this paper proposes solutions to the problems in combination with the gatekeeper theory of communication, to promote the rational distribution and utilization of resources, meet the material needs of disaster victims, and ensure the basic life of the people.
