Department of Homeland Security to Dispense Terror Alerts Via Facebook


A draft of the Homeland Security Department’s new plan to revise the National Terrorism Advisory System indicates that Facebook and Twitter may be used to distribute alerts in some cases. Details of what channel the announcement would appear in aren’t available at this time.

Facebook might distribute alerts to the news feeds of those who opt in by Liking a certain Facebook Page, such as that of the Homeland Security Department, similar to how it did in its partnership with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children to distribute AMBER alerts.
