We Complained And They Listened – Facebook Activates Safety Check Feature For The Nigeria Blast

After the criticism Facebook received from Nigerians & citizens from other countries regarding the #PrayforParis attack and the way Facebook used its Safety Check feature for the attacks in Paris but not for the Beirut bombings a day earlier, the social networking site has activated its “Safety Check” feature in Nigeria following the death of 30 people in the Yola Blast.

Mark Zuckerberg, made the announcement in a post on his account:

“We’ve activated Safety Check again after the bombing in Nigeria this evening,” Zuckerberg said after Tuesday’s attack.

For those who don’t know, Safety check allows users to “check-in” and let family and friends know they’re safe.

My prayers go to the families of those who lost their lives in the Yola bombing. Do share the word.
