Facebook announced the creation of Crisis Response, a new centre on the platform that includes all information about the latest crises – natural disasters, attacks, etc. CR will combine tools already found on the platform: Safety Check, Community Help and Fundraisers.
Users who visit Crisis Response online will get to see which of their friends are marked as safe, along with helpful links and articles, updates, posts, and videos from community members, along with links to fundraising and relief efforts. There will be posts from community members asking for, or offering help.
Communication during large-scale tragedies can be difficult and Facebook is again trying to help the community in its own way.
