Facebook creates ‘Community Help’ feature for disaster assistance

Facebook plans to add a feature on Wednesday to make it easier for people affected by disasters to find each other locally to provide and receive help. The world's largest social network said its "Community Help" will activate after natural disasters and major accidents as a part of "Safety Check," a related feature that allows Facebook users to assure others that they are safe. "It's going to help easily match people who are looking to help with those who need help within the community," Preethi Chetan, a Facebook product designer, told reporters in a briefing.
