Facebook To Post Amber Alerts In Users’ News Feeds

Facebook has announced that it will begin posting Amber Alerts in news feeds with a photo of the missing child and details about the case to encourage users to be on the lookout. What do you think?

“Smart idea. If there’s one thing Facebook users don’t instinctively scroll past with absolute indifference, it’s photos of people’s kids.”

“This is also a great way to track what kinds of kids are trending with abductors.”

Michael Haley • Order Processor

“These Amber Alert people just won’t quit, huh?”
