After Earthquake, Google Rolls Out Person Finder in Turkish
The recent magnitude 7.2 earthquake in Turkey has resulted in millions in damage and 272 deaths, and many people are still searching for loved ones. Google has issued its Person Finder in Turkish to help them find each other.
Person Finder works by taking data about a person – a name, and whatever other personal information the one searching for them has. Person Finder is a pretty simple concept – it’s basically a searchable database of names and other data. The big advantage is that it offers a single place to find and comb through the data, and users can update it as they find people. Google doesn’t keep the data for more than two months, and users can specify when they want the data they enter to expire.
