Facebook To Begin Issuing Amber Alerts On Users’ News Feed
Facebook has joined forces with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in an effort to make detailed Amber Alerts available on your Facebook news feed when u login on your computer or mobile device . Facebook users before now have been posting pictures and updates asking others to help locate their missing children. These developments inspired the introduction of the program, said Facebook’s head of global safety and policy, Emily Vacher Facebook will put pictures, description of the vehicle involved and every available detail on your news feed if you're not listening to radio, watching TV or driving on the highway to receive an Amber Alert. The Alert will stay regionalized and Users will be notified depending on their geographical location, it will be directed only to users in the area where the child is missing. Users will be able to delete the post should they desire, but this hopefully will be one more way to assist authorities in searching for missing children.
