Facebook Launches Dedicated Tab for Safety Check

Facebook made Safety Check, their feature that lets users notify others they’re safe during an emergency, a permanent feature today.

In the announcement, Facebook says, “There’s now a single place to go to see where Safety Check has recently been activated, get the information you need and potentially be able to help affected areas. We will gradually roll this out in the upcoming weeks starting today.”

It’s sad that we need always-on disaster relief but Facebook is right in recognizing that terrorist attacks and extreme weather events now occur on a regular basis.
