Facebook prevents suicide

There have been several instances that prove social media to be harmful. But there seems to be some exceptions too! Both Facebook and Whatsapp have stepped the safety measures after facing severe criticism for their indifference. Here is an example for that. A girl from Assam was so frustrated with her life that she has decided to commit suicide. She has even expressed her wish on her facebook wall. This post has attracted the attention of Facebook headquarters in US who has alerted the state police. The girl was tracked down by the local police. She and her family have been counselled and the girl has been advised to remove the post. However this is not new for the facebook to alert the police in such situations. The police has saved the life of a minor in Guwahati this January following the caution sent by the Facebook.
