Facebook Users in Jamaica to Receive Alerts For Missing Children
Ananda Alerts will now be delivered to Facebook users in Jamaica courtesy of a partnership between the Ananda Alert Secretariat in the Office of the Children’s Registry (OCR) and the online social media and social networking service for the recovery of the island’s missing children.
Facebook users will now reportedly (As of May 1) receive Ananda Alerts via their newsfeeds once a child has been declared missing/abducted.
The alerts will also reportedly include photographs and other pertinent information about the child.
While speaking at the Courtyard Marriott, New Kingston, on Monday, Minister of State in the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information, Hon. Floyd Green, said the partnership will have a positive impact on the missing children programme.
He is quoted by JIS as saying:
“Through this partnership, Facebook will be ensuring that once a child is reported missing and comes into our Ananda Alert system, the information will appear automatically on the pages of its Jamaican users.”
“We hope that when the public sees these alerts they will take action and not just see the upload… see the picture and pass it on by, but will call a neighbour and join the search in bringing home this missing child,” he also stated.
