Facebook today announced Crisis Response, a single spot where users will be able to find information about a range of natural and man-made disasters, weather events, and more. Crisis Response houses existing Facebook tools such as Safety Check, Community Help, and Fundraisers. Moving forward, the Crisis Response center will also include links to articles, videos, and photos of events or emergencies posted by the community. Facebook says it continues to refine these tools based on user feedback. People have taken advantage of offerings such as Safety Check in recent weeks to mark themselves safe in the face of storms Harvey and Irma. In addition to informing friends and family of their safety, users can rely on Crisis Response to learn more about individual events, create or participate in fundraisers, and contribute information to ensure others know when and where help is available. Facebook said it is rolling out the new Crisis Response tool on desktop and mobile to all users over the next few weeks.
