Facebook’s Safety Check Glitch for Lahore Attack

The heinous attack in Lahore that occurred on the Easter Day in Pakistan made Facebook make a minor glitch in their security check service. However, later, Facebook apologized for their mistake excusing that it was due to the computer-addressed notices asking for safety from the Lahore attack that occurred at the public park.

Because of this Facebook system glitch, Facebook users all across the world were getting security notifications on their Facebook. Even users in New York were getting them! The incident is one of the worst displays of terrorism in the history of Pakistan. All the people affected were innocent, amongst which, most of them were women and children, who came to the public park for recreation. Although local news channels were loaded with the news alert immediately after the attack but due to Facebook’s system glitch, this incident became international news too very soon after its occurrence.

The majority of the Facebook notifications dealing with this matter asked: “Are you affected by the explosion?” On an initial note, these notifications made people across the globe search for the occurrence of an explosion nearby and then they heard the news. Almost all the Facebook users across the globe sympathized with the families, who lost their loved ones in Pakistan and condemned this attack.

This security check also made people inquire about their loved ones across the globe immediately. Similar kind of Facebook security check got activated when a blast occurred in Nigeria last year.
