Lost Girls Found Via Facebook Status Update
Two girls, aged 10 and 12, got lost walking around drains in Hackham West in Adelaide. (first sign of bad judgment). They had cell phones so updated their status on Facebook … so they were rescued. I first read this in a free Swiss newspaper given out in the train stations. What was better though, was this article. The analyst points out, if they had cell phones, they could have called “000″ (911 equivalent), duh.
Makes one reconsider all the child-tracking mechanisms and applications. If the child doesn’t want to be found, he or she can turn the cell phone off. If the child does want to be found, he or she could call or SMS.
