Facebook Introduces Safety Check

Posted on October 16, 2014

Facebook :

In times of disaster or crisis, people turn to Facebook to check on loved ones and get updates. It is in these moments that communication is most critical both for people in the affected areas and for their friends and families anxious for news. We want to provide a helpful tool that people can use when major disasters strike, so we’ve created Safety Check – a simple and easy way to say you’re safe and check on others.

This is actually a great idea, being able to check for family members or close friends in case of natural disasters or huge crisis (if there’s still Internet, of course.)
