Introducing Facebook's New Safety Check

Do people really check Facebook the minute a natural disaster strikes in an area where friends and family live?

We want to provide a helpful tool that people can use when major disasters strike, so we’ve created Safety Check آ– a simple and easy way to say you’re safe and check on others. During a major disaster, Safety Check will help you:

  • Let friends and family know you’re safe

  • Check on others in the affected area

  • Mark your friends as safe

  • Only your friends will see your safety status and the comments you share
