We all cringe whenever Facebook announces a new feature. They often make things worse, not better. Remember when Facebook made you download the Messenger app to send and receive messages on your smartphone or tablet? Not many people were happy about that. Or how about layout changes? It takes weeks to get used to a new look.
But yesterday, Facebook rolled out a new tool that I pray you'll never need, but if you do, you'll be glad you have it. It's called Safety Check, and it's a simple but effective way to find out if your family is safe in the event of an emergency.
