Facebook to introduce Emergency 'Safety Check' feature

The Tech Giant, Facebook has come up with yet another super-exciting feature known as the 'Safety Check'. 

Now, what does this feature do and how is it gonna help you?
This new feature will give you a simple and easy way to tell it your friends and family that you're safe and know about their situation during the time of natural disasters.

In a facebook post, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg mentioned :
               'Over the last few years, there have been many                                  disasters and crisis where people have turned to the 
       internet for help. Each time, we see people use Facebook 
   to check on their loved ones and see if they're safe. Connecting  with people is always valuable, but these are the moments when it matters most'.

Now, how will it work ? 
After a natural disaster, the tool will automatically get activated and facebook will determine if you are in the affected area by using the information like the city you have mentioned in your profile, your last location if you have opted in to the nearby friend's product and the city you are using the internet from .

If facebook finds that you are in the affected area, you will receive a facebook notification asking if you're safe. You can select 'I am Safe' if you are and a notification of it will go to all your friends in your friend list and it will start appearing in their News Feeds as well. In case if facebook gets your location wrong, you will get another option to mark yourself as 'Outside the affected area' and a notification of it also will go to your friends.

Similarly, you can check on your friends in the affected area and mark them as safe after they confirm it. Clicking on the notification will take you to the Safety Check bookmark where you can find all the updates of your friends.

This new exciting feature will be available globally on Android, IOS, feature phones and desktop and will be able to deal only with the natural disasters for now but definitely, its scope will be expanded over time. Hope, it proves out to be really very helpful for the people who directly or indirectly get affected by these natural disasters.
