As Hurricane Sandy wreaks havoc on the East Coast, people are checking into Facebook to let friends and relatives know that they have found safe, dry ground. Facebook released statistics today about the most talked about terms with regard to the hurricane, and “we are OK,” was the top term on the social network.
Wondering how you can help those affected by Hurricane Sandy? Facebook can help. The American Red Cross has been using its Facebook page to post information about shelters, as well as to accept donations for the cause. The social network also reminded its users on the East Coast that posting status updates on Facebook from mobile devices is a quick and easy way to let loved ones know they are safe.
The National Hurricane Center is trying to get more Facebook likes, as the official start of hurricane season approaches on June 1.
