Facebook to Collaborate with Amber Alert

Facebook has received some negative press as of late when pertaining to the security and privacy of its users, but finally here is some possible good news we all can use in the fight to keep children safe both on and off-line.

Facebook has decided to collaborate with the AMBER Alert system, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and The U.S. Department of Justice to create 53 individual pages, one for each state including the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Users will start receiving updates via their news feeds.

The goal is to use the more than 500 million users that access Facebook through multiple means to aid in the information dissemination when a child goes missing.

Below is the announcement:
