Within minutes of the earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, bloggers were posting about chaos in the streets. Even though it's extremely poor country with little access to the technology, people there were reaching out with social networking sites to share images and information.

Twitter, Facebook and Picfog became the source of photos and video in the early hours after the quake, as many media outlets were only able to provide written accounts initially. Doug Porritt of "Rays of Hope for Haiti just returned from Port-au-Prince two days ago. He was texting friends there when the quake hit, and lost contact with them immediately. "It's just devastating to think I was just standing there in the slums 2 days ago and I can't imagine any of those houses are still standing after a 7.0," Doug told FOX 17 News. "These are the poorest of the poor in the Western Hemisphere."
