Facebook Rolls Out 'Safety Check' Feature to Connect Loved Ones in Times of Crises

FB10-17Facebook is unveiling a new feature for users affected by a disaster or crisis to quickly let friends and family know they’re safe.

The tool, called "Safety Check," asks users who appear to be near an affected area to check in to let others know they’re safe or aren't in the disaster zone. Once users reply, their friends will see them marked as safe.
