Facebook Warning Messages – level 1

04-09-2019 07:00

Facebook is testing a new tool. It can help save lives. It is a type of message on Facebook. Local governments can use it to warn people. It can warn them about hurricanes, fires, or tell them if somebody is lost.

Some users are testing it. Facebook asks 2,000 people some questions. Facebook wants to know if it is a good tool. Seventy-three percent of these people get to know something new. Forty-three people do something, thanks to the warning message.

This tool is good. However, the batteries in phones and computers are not very good. When there is no electricity, you cannot use devices. It is also good to have a weather radio. Its batteries stay full longer. Some models also have solar panels. Some models have a piece that you can turn to create electricity.

Difficult words: tool (a thing which you can use to do something), local government (the “bosses” of an area), warning message (a message about danger).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
