As soon as a law enforcer and an officer from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children issue an Amber Alert, Facebook sends an alert to the News Feed of a user’s phone or computer, along with detailed information. Information includes a picture of the child, a description of the vehicle, and others. Facebook users can share this information to their News Feed.

The app has been a success, with missing children being found immediately.
