BBC News - Google aids Japan quake victims

Socially responsive

Google has launched a version of its Person Finder service for people caught up in the Japanese earthquake.

The website acts as a directory and message board so people can look for lost loved ones or post a note saying they are safe.

It is designed to be embedded on websites and social network pages to reach as wide an audience as possible.

The system has proved useful after other disasters that have stopped people getting in direct touch.
