January | Monday | 04, 2016 :: As Earthquake struck northeastern part of India, Facebook activated Safety Check. Founder of Facebook. Mark Zuckerberg updated his facebook account saying,
A major earthquake just struck northeastern India and we’ve activated Safety Check to help people in the area let friends and family know they’re safe. The tool is here:
Tremors were also felt in Bangladesh, Myanmar and Nepal. If you appear to be nearby, we’ll send you a notification to access Safety Check so you can share that you’re safe and see that people you care about are safe as well.
My thoughts are with everyone in the affected areas. May you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.
