We analyze a case of humanitarian communication that travelled through Facebook in unpredictable ways and demonstrate the breakdown between sender and receiver positions. Th e case shows how communicative practices are challenged and how humanitarian organizations are destabilized in a new and unpredictable commu-nication environment. Using mediatization theory, we outline four aspects of social media processes that challenge the current practice of humanitarian communica-tion. Furthermore, we suggest that broadening the consideration of media amalga-mation enables a critical discussion of humanitarianism in networked media.
