This contribution examines how people used social media to provide help during the Norway attacks on 22 July, 2011. In the attacks, a person first detonated a bomb in Oslo, killing eight people. He then drove some 30 miles to the island of Utoya, where he shot 69 young people. Our analysis develops a new concept of ‚peripheral cooperation’ to enable better understanding of how the public can contribute to the mobilization of resources.
