Checking For Safety of family & friends
Facebook mobile app had built a tool to check for the safety of people during disasters like the tsunami in Japan, calling it Safety Check.
It was also found useful when life in Nepal, Chile and Afghanistan were disturbed by earthquakes, besides severe typhoons, such as Ruby, cyclones such as Tropical Cyclone Pam and others.
Typically the use of SafetyCheck tool is decided by the company based on a list of factors. These critical factors include the impact, the scope as well as scale of disasters, reports Vice President of Growth, Alex Schultz.
Hence, deploying the tool for any manmade disaster is already in place. However, it is not yet prepared to handle issues such as war; or tackling disasters such as that which occurred during the Ebola crisis.
And by making the tool available during the Paris Attack, Facebook has come in for a lot of praise as well as criticism. You can preview the ‘safety check tool’ with this “Facebook free Download”.
Praise and Criticism
Facebook was commended for its swift action in introducing the mobile app tool, but just a few hours later there were users reacting differently. They demanded to know why the tool was not used at the Beirut killings where nearly 40 people were injured. Why the attack at the Kenya’s Garissa University College which saw 147 people killed was not offered the same quick tool.
Chief Executive Officer of Facebook Inc, Mark Zuckerberg was quick to accept the criticism.
The technology entrepreneur was quick to offer the ‘safety Check’ tool for a wider-spectrum of human disasters.
“We care about all people equally”
Zuckerberg responded on his blog that the company considers all people equally. He vouched that his company would ‘help people’ suffering in such situations as much as possible. Soon, Facebook should have the tool up for local, small-sized disasters, even if they are not trending on international social media or news, conclude analysts.
