You can change your Facebook profile pic in support of Paris attack victims

Mark Zuckerberg’s social media site has introduced a French flag filter to go on top of your profile picture. The update says: “Change your profile picture to support France and the people of Paris”, in an effort to show solidarity with the victims of the tragedy.

This comes after the app also re-introduced their safety check system so people in Paris could notify friends and family if they were safe.

The clever system, which was used after the Nepal earthquake, lets people check in as safe and also see who else in their area is accounted for.

Speaking about the safety check, Zuckerberg previously said: “Over the last few years there have been many disasters and crises where people have turned to the Internet for help. Each time, we see people use Facebook to check on their loved ones and see if they’re safe. Connecting with people is always valuable, but these are the moments when it matters most.

“Safety Check is our way of helping our community during natural disasters and gives you an easy and simple way to say you’re safe and check on all your friends and family in one place.”

In the devastating aftermath of the Paris attacks, people are using social media to pay their respects and help those in the French capital.
