The most common causes of a natural disaster is the connection breakage one experiences with his relatives. Well, Mark Zuckerberg’s mastermind, Facebook have taken a step forward to overcome this issue. Just a few days ago, Facebook officially announced its brand new feature, namely, ‘Safety Check’ that helps you notify your friends and relatives whether you are all right or not, sounds COOL, right?
This fantastic feature will be live to all the 1.3 billion users. Not only android or iOS, but all the Facebookers can utilise this feature on their desktops too! This feature activates automatically when one hits a disaster. Can’t
Can’t belive…whenever you are in an affected area, you’ll get a notification from Facebook asking whether you are safe or not and moreover, if you are unable to access internet connectivity on your device, your friends can reply on your behalf i.e. you are safe or not.
Actually, this tool was developed following the unpredictable Disaster at Japan in 2011. Now, you’d be thinking how he tracks your location, right? Its simple guys; using the city and the address you’ve provided in your Facebook account. All you have to do to leave a message to your friends and family is to click I’m safe or I’m not.
The Company’s officials have officially wrote:
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.
Also, once the tool is activated, you’re gonna receive notification from your referral friends who’ve marked themselves safe or unsafe at the times of disaster.
