Facebook to start issuing Amber Alerts

Following the high-profile disappearance of the 11-year-old, Dundalk, South Carolina girl, Facebook is adding a new feature to its site. Furthermore, on Tuesday, Facebook is going to start issuing the Amber Alert system to help find missing and abducted children. Undeniably this is a smart move for the tech giant, given Facebook currently has over 185 million U.S. users, not including the millions of others around the world. Additionally, Facebook has teamed up with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children so Amber Alerts will show up in user's newsfeeds in targeted areas. Luckily, the Dundalk child was found safe about 36 hours after her disappearance, thanks to a motel owner noticing the child’s photo that had been shared on Facebook.
