Google Public Alerts: Google Brings Public Alerts to Japan

Google Public Alerts: With thousands of earthquakes hitting Japan every year, it is safe to say that people in the area need as much help as they can get. Leave it to Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) to provide assistance.

Google is one of the hedge fund industry’s most popular stock picks, and it’s always important to pay attention to the smart money (see just why here).

More so today than ever before, when there is a disaster people are turning to the internet. Gone are the days of attempting to get information from the television, radio, or other people.

Google Inc (GOOG)With all this being said, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is now offering Public Alerts in Japan. While this service was rolled out in the United States in 2012, no other countries, until now, were involved.

According to the company’s official blog post, “Google Public Alerts is a platform designed to provide accurate and relevant emergency alerts when and where you’re searching for them online.”

All in all, this is sure to come in handy if any more disasters strike the area. If nothing else, it will serve as a great way to keep people informed during these dangerous and stressful times.

The blog post goes on to add the following:

“Relevant earthquake and tsunami warnings for Japan will now appear on Google Search, Google Maps and Google Now when you search online during a time of crisis. If a major earthquake alert is issued in Kanagawa Prefecture, for example, the alert information will appear on your desktop and mobile screens when you search for relevant information on Google Search and Google Maps.”

This is just one more way that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) is looking to bring more good to the world. Sure, it will bring more traffic to its services and attract a larger number of people, but the end goal is to truly help others.
