Social media play a huge role on how we communicate and share information and, just recently, social media ignited a revolution where anti-government protesters in Tahir advocated for democracy. Social media also played a key role in reuniting victims with their loved ones after the 8.9 quake and tsunami devastation in Japan.
It is no wonder that social media can also be used in help find missing children. SecuraChild, powered by SecuraTrac, the latest advancement in combining the power of social media networks (Facebook, Twitter) and law enforcement, to aid in finding missing children.
SecuraTrac CEO Chris Holbert in a statement on the SecuraChild website, “If your child goes missing it is nearly, if not totally, impossible to remain calm…our mission in creating SecuraChild is to provide parents with a free, go-to service that they can access in an emergency to print out the vital information they need to provide law enforcement about their child. Details cannot be forgotten because of stress and panic this way. Also, unlike other services that exist today, SecuraChild is free for parents to use to create profiles for their children, and we broadcast the notification they send us when their child is missing to Facebook, Twitter and our members to create a vast network of searchers in seconds.”
