Thank you facebook. With facebook l was able to stay in contact with my family to know they were safe.
Facebook often gets a lot of bad press, so lets not forget the positive uses.
To be fair of course, its not just Facebook but all sorts of social media, networks and Websites that people are using to reach out to one another in a time of crisis. And while social media won’t stop Cyclone Yasi from pulling the roof off your house or a flood wrecking your home, being able to check that people and the places you care about are ok is a good thing, isn’t it?
