Facebook users trying to offer or request help after a natural disaster on the platform’s Crisis Response pages can now do so via WhatsApp, which could mean more people can use this feature, according to Facebook officials.
Formerly, replies to requests on Facebook’s Crisis Response pages could only be sent with Facebook Messenger.
She noted that using WhatsApp for its Crisis Response tool would be especially beneficial in areas with poor connectivity, where WhatsApp might be the only accessible messaging tool.
Additionally, new features will allow for photo and video sharing within the Crisis Response center on Facebook.
This means individuals can share first-hand accounts of things like road closures or building collapses, according to Dalton Smith.
