Google helps Japan quake victims by adding Person Finder


The devastating earthquake and tsunami combo in Japan has left a lot of people worried about the status of their beloved family members living in hard hit areas. Many can’t contact family membersand because of the ongoing rolling blackouts and unreliable communication networks, communication is difficult, at best. Google has stepped up and created the Google Person Finder, a handy little web based app that allows you to search for information about loved ones and colleagues, and even post information about quake victims that you’ve currently come in contact with. You can search for people via their name and mobile number, or add information about people if you’ve managed to contact someone and want to post their current status. Good on you, Google.
