When a disaster occurred, people try to acquire information through social media such as electronic bulletin boards, SNSs, and video services. Their decision-making tend to be affected by social media information. Sometimes, social media information is useful, so people can get valuable knowledge. On the other hand, social media information is occasionally unreliable. Harmful rumors spread and cause people to panic. In today's information oriented society, a mechanism to detect rumor information in social media has become very important. This paper proposes a framework to detect the rumor information in social media. Our proposed framework clarifies topics in social media, visualizes topic structures in time series variation. Then it extracts rumor candidates and seeks related information from other media such as TV program, newspapers and so on in order to confirm the reliability of rumor candidates. By our framework, potential rumors will be shown.
