In order to make it easier to communicate during any natural disaster or major events, Facebook rolled out a special Community Help section earlier last year. Thanks to this feature, users could ask for help during a major crisis as well as help out others with required assistance. In an attempt to make the service more accessible, Facebook has decided to give selected companies and organizations ability to post in Community Help section.
Earlier, the social networking giant has revealed that first wave of selected companies have access to the crisis management features. At the moment, organizations such as Direct Relief, Lyft, Chase, Feeding America, International Medical Corps, The California Department of Forestry and Fire, and Save the Children are part of the addition.
Thanks to the latest addition, businesses and organizations can now offer free or discounted services in the affected area. In the official announcement, Facebook revealed that people used the Community Help section more than 750,000 times since it was launched earlier last year.
