Topic: Facebook activates 'Safety Check' for Nigeria blasts after criticism


(Reuters) - Facebook Inc activated its "Safety Check" feature after deadly blasts in Nigeria late on Tuesday following criticism from users that the social media network was being selective about deploying it. Facebook usually activates the feature, which allows users to mark themselves as safe, after natural disasters, but not bombings or attacks. The social network, however, activated it after Friday's gun and bomb attacks in Paris, drawing criticism from some users because the feature was not activated for suicide bombings in Beirut a day earlier.
