Facebook- A Life Saver

A lot of reports have showed that people have ruined huge amount of time being online on facebook also getting into trouble by various means, be it account hacking or fake accounts fooling you.
But you will be amazed as you read on ,down the post. The reason why you will be amazed is unique in itself and has never happened yet. Social networking giant-Facebook  has a system working all over the world on all accounts that keep an eye on statuses ,posts and your daily activity.

This system is dedicated to prevent suicide of the users whom their friends think are undergoing mental pressure and are having suicidal thoughts.The users who think ,someone might commit suicide with the statuses they post, likes and shares they do can report these kind of activities to facebook and that reported post will be studied by a third party and analyzed thoroughly and if they think that a particular user needs attention in terms of mental condolence to prevent their suicide.

When it gets confirmed by the third party that a particular user might attempt suicide, facebook pops up a message as shown below.

It lets the users know that "a friend thinks you might be going through something difficult and asked us to look at your recent post". Only the user can see this pop up and everything that follows.After the user is reached out by facebook , following options are shown up to the user one by one.

You can then choose to talk to a friend ,or a helpline support-"You're not alone,we do this to many people every month" says the notification.
As we know last October facebook apologized for mistakenly labeling transgenders people's names as "Fake" under its "real name". For this set of alerts ,facebook has partnered with many mental health organizations which include Forefront , No Matters Now , National Suicide Prevention Lifeline & Save.org. Facebook is No more a place where you aren't safe,no doubts on the vulnerability of being there but no one can deny the safety provided there.

Facebook has a smarter way to take care of its users, though it's a indirect way to take care. Let's join hands to save lives, let's feel blessed on doing so. Let's prove that technology isn't always a boon. Save a life and feel like a superhero.....!!
