Google and Facebook Activate Earthquake Relief Services in Mexico

As is customary in emergency cases, Facebook and Google have enabled tools to locate people missing after the earthquake of 7.1 that Mexico lived on Tuesday.

Facebook activated the Safety Check platform that allows people to confirm that they are safe. In this space it is also possible to seek and offer refuge, help, accommodation and see, through a map, the location of those who request these alternatives.

Also, users will find news with information relevant to the emergency, a list with friends who are in the area, affected cities and numbers to contact the authorities.
On the other hand, the technology giant reported that it will donate one million dollars for recovery efforts, said Sundar Pichai, Google CEO, in his Twitter account.

The Power of Social Networks to Help Victims of the Earthquake in Mexico

Mexico was hit by a 7.1-magnitude earthquake with an epicenter in the state of Puebla, but due to its proximity to Mexico City and the shallow depth of the epicenter (57 km), the capital of the country was one of the most to register already 94 fatalities and more than 800 wounded, as well as 39 buildings with collapse or collapse.

However, within minutes of the earthquake, hundreds of social network users began distributing information on earthquake damage, and while the corresponding institutions did not report damage or death in the city, several users were already asking for help from the collapse of some buildings, in fact, one of the first images that circulated on the Internet showed Mexico City with various points of the city covered with dust, a symptom of collapsed structures.

Telcel, AT & T and Movistar opened their networks so people could call, send messages and use data without cost, and long before companies issued an official communiqué, the information reached users through social networks, but even other people also removed the keys from their WiFi network and shared the information so that anyone could access the Internet and notify their relatives and friends that they were well, to share important information, or to be aware of the places where more people were needed to help.

The Guinness official who attended the event was reported as saying that the organisers were not properly set up to attempt to break that record. Event organisers then improvised and attempted to establish the world record for most consecutive selfies taken at one place. Results for that record attempt have not yet been released.
