In partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, Facebook yesterday launched an automatic Amber Alert system, News Channel 5 reports. The new program will geographically pinpoint the alerts to Facebook users in the search area. If a missing child is reported within the user’s location, Facebook will post detailed information and photographs on the user’s timeline. A “Learn More” button will link to the official missing child poster.
