Facebook is adding new tools! Very sign-o’-the-times too.
Charity fundraising, marking yourself safe during a crisis and for helping others after a natural disaster are among the new ways to communicate.
The social network made the announcements yesterday.
A tool called “safety check” lets Facebook users mark themselves safe during a crisis, whether it’s a natural disaster, a terror attack or something else.
Beginning early next year, a tool called “community help” will let users offer and receive shelter, food or other types of help during disasters.
