Google has put the power of its search engine to work to help in with the relief efforts in Chile. The Google Person Finder: Chile Earthquake allows people who are looking for someone to quickly connect with someone who has information about someone. The Google application currently has 17,800 names in its database as of this writing.
The Google Person Finder: Chile Earthquake application can be rendered in both English or Spanish. And it starts with the simple question: “What is your situation?”
You can either search for someone, or enter information you may have about someone. This database will then go to work to make a connection between the two parties.
