It is time for another feature in the social networking site Facebook. The new feature is about updating in the site about you during the time of disasters. Say some disaster took place and you can intimate your friends that you’re fine, if you really are.

This new tool in Facebook asks if you’re alright. This check determines your location by looking at the area and sends a notification to your friends and family that you’re safe, which makes them feel relaxed after knowing about this.

Suppose if a natural disaster strikes in your area, you will receive a notification from this social networking site Facebook, asking if you’re alright. This check finds your location based on location of your profile, or the area where you are using the internet.

So now, if you’re safe, just hit the button “I’m safe”, which intimates to your friends in their news feed.

Safety Check is now available for all the Facebook users and it works on Android, iOS, featured phones and on desktop. There are many similar firms from other social networking platforms like Google, Twitter. Google, in 2012 launched Public Alerts, and Twitter came up with Twitter Alerts in 2013. Both of them later paired and as a result, Google have included tweets automatically from the disaster – hit areas into its emergency service.
