Facebook Activates ‘Safety Check Feature’ for Nice

It’s the third time in nearly a month that the social networking giant, Facebook Inc. activated the safety check feature after a deadly attack on a Florida night club that claimed the lives of 49 people.

Less than two weeks later, the company turned the feature again after a suicide attack that left 45 people dead at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, Turkey.

The social networking platform today has turned on its feature after a large truck mowed through a crowd that was celebrating Bastille Day in the French city of Nice, killing at least 84 people and injuring scores more in what President Francois Hollande called a terrorist act.

“We hope the people in the area find the tool a helpful way to let their friends and family know they are OK,” Facebook spokesperson said in a statement.
