Facebook, children’s charity join forces


Social media giant Facebook and the Smile of the Child charity have joined forces in the search for missing children.

The initiative, announced at a press conference at the charity’s headquarters in Athens on Monday, aims to ensure that announcements regarding missing children reach a wider audience as fast as possible.

“Details of the missing child will be posted to Facebook users who are in the area where the search is being made,” said Costas Yiannopoulos, the chairman of Smile of the Child.
