Facebook recently expanded its dedicated 'community help' section response to the outbreak of the coronavirus. The updated 'community help' section allows users to offer their assistance to others. Users can now offer to help with transportation, getting household supplies, and even volunteer work. Additionally, users in need of supplies or assistance can ask for help through the updated tab. Facebook also added links to charities and information pages for users to access.
Overall the updated social media platform can help people seek and provide assistance to others. These changes will help communities support each other as need, and promote positive social interactions at a difficult time.
Facebook used similar features during natural disasters, and the new tools are now available in the US, UK, Australia, and Canada.
