    Facebook Turns On safety Check For Nigeria Bombing After Criticism For Ignoring Beirut Blasts.


    We've activated Safety Check again after the bombing in Nigeria this evening, co-founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg said in a post on the site.

    The social network had come under criticism from those caught up in last Thursday's blasts in Beirut that they were not offered the service but those in Friday´s Paris attacks were.

    The tool allows users to check whether friends are safe after attacks or natural disasters such as earthquakes.

    Zuckerberg said at the weekend the feature would be used more widely in the future.
