If you are an ardent fan of Facebook, then you may soon notice a new feature that “could save lives” on your popular place of hangout while in front of a computer. Various media reports indicate the CEO of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg is expected to announce this new feature while making his appearance on the network television.

It is still a mystery what the tool will be, but Zuckerberg’s schedule is not. He will appear in a “Good Morning America” segment aired from Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park, California, where he will be interviewed by Robin Roberts.


Though Facebook has not officially disclosed anything about the tool, but Zeus Kerravala, an analyst with ZK Research, said that the social network is in the perfect position to come up with something really helpful.

“Facebook has location info, so it knows where you are,” Kerravala said. “It also knows who you are and who is in your network, including family. With that kind of information, they could build an applet that allows you to broadcast emergency messages through Facebook.”
