In the newest Facebook updates, it has announced a feature which activates automatically when a city is hit by a disaster. It searches up all the people having Facebook profiles of that city and ask them whether they are safe or not, if the presses the “OK” feature automatically posts on the user’s profile telling everyone that the person is safe from the disaster.
This feature was inspired from the 2011 Japan earthquake in which facebook’s Japan engineers created a disaster message board which later turned into a safety check. However this is not the first time when an online company has developed a feature like this. Google in 2012 created public alerts in the wake of Hurricane “SANDY”.
For a more detailed insight of this feature, kindly watch the video below:
