Facebook to post Amber Alerts for missing children
Facebook will tap its 185 million U.S. users to help find and return missing children with a new initiative to push Amber Alerts to its popular social media news feeds.
The new program, which launches Tuesday in partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, will geographically pinpoint the alerts so they appear in timelines of Facebook users who are near the search area.
"This a game changer," NCMEC founder John Walsh, host of CNN's The Hunt, said in an interview. "Facebook is the 700-pound gorilla. It will put information about missing children into the hands of Facebook users immediately."
