Facebook Amber Alert system

amber-alert

Facebook users in Canada will soon receive Amber Alert notifications to help locate missing children in their area. Facebook is working with police across the country to launch the new alert system.

According to Facebook management, once an Amber Alert is issued, the information will be sent directly to Facebook and to users within the search area.

Police related to that case will determine the range of the target area for each alert before Facebook shares it to user timelines.
