The social networking giant, Facebook, has come up with the feature called as "Safety check" through which people who are in the earthquake affected region can let their friends and relatives know that they are safe by clicking the safe button. Similarly, Google, on the other hand, has activated a "person finder" tool to help locate friends and family in the earthquake affected regions. So after the devastating earthquake that struck Nepal and killed around 1900 people and leaving almost 5000 injured, people have turned to the social media to locate their friends and relatives. For instance, a family residing in Nepal will get a notification asking if they're safe or not. They just need to click the "Safe" button and their friends and relatives will come to know that they're safe. "This morning we activated Safety Check for people affected by the earthquake in Nepal. It's a simple way to let family and friends know you're okay. If you're in one of the areas affected by the earthquake, you'll get a notification asking if you're safe, and whether you want to check on any of your friends. When disasters happen, people need to know their loved ones are safe. It's moments like this that being able to connect really matters. My thoughts are with everyone who's been caught up in this tragedy," Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said in a Facebook post this morning. Google Person finder on the other hand is a feature basically to build up a database of a person wherein you get two options -"I am looking for someone" and "I have information about someone." You can make updates by clicking on either of it . Apart from these platforms, even the telecom service providers have come up with services like calls on local rates to Nepal for the next 3 days. BSNL is the first one to support this and the other major telecom operators are to follow.
