Facebook Accidentally Pushes Pakistan’s Lahore Safety Check Notification Worldwide

Yesterday, individuals who are thousands of miles away from an explosion in Gulshan-i-Iqbal Park in Lahore, Pakistan received a push notification asking them if they were okay and whether they wanted to notify their friends on Facebook as such.

The feature launched more than two years ago usually comes up after natural or human-caused disasters, so than one can notify their friends and family that they are unharmed.

Sofar, Facebook is still unclear about what caused the glitch but is working to determine why it happened.

The company has come out and apologized to anyone who received the notification outside Pakistan.

“We apologize to anyone who mistakenly received a notification outside of Pakistan and are working to resolve the issue,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. 


A number of people in New York, the Bay Area and England tweeted screenshots of the notification, expressing their confusion over why they received it.
