Facebook Page Aims to Reunite Owners with Photos Scattered by Tornadoes

There have been a number of devastating tornadoes in the Southeastern United States this past week, with the homes in many communities reduced to rubble. While certain things can be rebuilt or replaced, photographs lost in the storm often cannot be. A new Facebook page has been created after the storms that aims to reunite owners with photographs scattered in the winds, and already boasts close to 50,000 fans and 600+ uploaded photographs. It’s a neat idea, and a great example of how Facebook can be used for good and not just procrastination.

Update: Interesting turn of events… Looks like Facebook didn’t like what was going on, and killed off the page. Wow.


Update: Never mind. Looks like the URL of the page got changed or something. Here it is.

    Michael, is that a correct link to the Facebook page?

    Is it a different page than http://www.facebook.com/PicturesandDocumentsfoundafterAprilTornadoes , which appears to be active…
