Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has done a lot of things with their platform to make money and generate revenues. But these tech giants are not doing everything for generating revenues. One best example is the Nepal Earthquake on Saturday that has devastated the lives of many people living in the earthquake affected area. Both Google Inc (NASAQ:GOOGL) and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) has come up with the apps to help out the victims of the earthquake. But how? CNBC’s Morgan Brennan reported on CNBC about the technology that could come for rescue during crisis.
Nepal was hit with a devastating earthquake on Saturday, which claimed lives of more than 3000 people and left more than 6000 people injured. This earth quake had left many families shattered with many people lost and trying to find their loved ones. Brennan reported that Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) and Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has come up with its app to help people find the loved ones who were lost during the natural calamity at Nepal.
Brennan reported that Facebook is helping people in locating missing loved ones through their app. She added that the social network company’s new safety check app asks people in the area affected by the disaster about their safety. She said that this safety check app from Facebook also helps people in finding contacts in the area and in turn notify about their status.
“Facebook helping people locating missing loved ones. The social network’s safety check app asks users in an area affected by disaster or tragedy if they are safe. Contacts can also find friends in the area and in turn get notified about their status,” Brennan reported.
She added that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL) has also developed a similar app which helps people in locating the missing people, which they call it as ‘Person Finder’. She added that this app from Google functions as a missing person database. Google’s app helps the user in updating their status in the tool, which can notify the family members about the whereabouts and trace them.
Facebook’s safety check was first developed in 2011, soon after the Tsunami devastation in Japan. This app functions as a very helpful tool during natural disasters. This tool helped many people in locating their loved ones during the natural disaster in Japan and this tool is helping people in Nepal at the moment.
