Facebook has become an integral part of everyone’s lives due to the phenomenon called social networking. One can argue that the biggest thing to happen to social media and social networking is Facebook, and they would be right. Whats more is that the company has cemented its feet into the social scene further after the recent acquisitions of Instagram and WhatsApp, making it also one of the most rounded out platforms on the internet and a content creator’s paradise.
Along with the amazing ability to connect with your friends, Facebook also accounts for the security and safety aspects of its users. One such feature is the check in feature. The check in feature allows you to notify your friends where you are at that moment. This allows contacts nearby to get in touch with you and also arrange a meet up. Also, in case of natural disasters, checking in your location helps authorities find you and get you to safety quickly.
