Google Person Finder Looks to Help Find Folks in Boston

Person Finder

We’ve still got details coming in on today’s bombing at the Boston Marathon, but one thing we do know for sure is that it’s hard to get in touch with people in the city right now. We sympathize with everyone who can’t get in touch with a parent, friend, sibling, or anyone else you care about in Boston today. And while we can’t do a ton about it, we can try and point you in the direction of help. One of those directions is Google Person Finder. From Boston, you can add names and provide information about people in the city, sending out a message in a bottle that you’re alright. Friends and family elsewhere can search the quick and dirty database for information about their loved ones. It’s not a perfect means of getting in touch, but it’s better than nothing, and hopefully it can put some troubled hearts at ease.

Of course, the service isn’t a whole lot of good without an Internet connection. On that note, @USAnons also made a pretty good point for Boston area businesses — today’s as good a day as any for sharing what you’ve got. Probably better than most. Stay safe and be well, all.
