17:54 EDTFBFacebook to expand use of 'Safety Check' feature in wake of Paris attacks
Facebook announced it will be expanding its use of "Safety Check," a feature allowing users of the social network who live in endangered areas of the world to let friends and family know they are safe. Traditionally limited to natural disasters, the policy change has been made in the wake of the terrorist attacks on Paris, France, during which the company turned on Safety Check for affected users. The move spurred both praise for quick action and criticism for not using the feature during other serious events such as Thursday's tragedy in Beirut, prompting Facebook to reconsider its use of the service. "Each time we have launched the tool, we've improved it... We are learning to make the tool and policies behind it better as we go -- and because Safety Check is a relatively new feature for us, we're still understanding how it can best be used... We talked with our employees on the ground, who felt that there was still a need that we could fill. So we made the decision to try something we've never done before: activating Safety Check for something other than a natural disaster... We want this tool to be available whenever and wherever it can help," explained the company.
