Facebook Safety Check

A new tool, the Facebook Safety Check functionality, has improved your safety. After activating the tool, Facebook actually checks your whereabouts. If you happen to be in an area affected by a natural disaster such as floods, wildfires, typhoons, cyclones, etc, Facebook asks you if you are safe.

This tip is very essential as it could save lives and lessen the destruction to property. If it notifies you when are out of danger, you can click on “I’m Safe,” to tell your friends that you are not in danger.
