Facebook Brings Suicide Prevention Tools To Live And Messenger

Good thing this tool wasn't around during the elections. Could you imagine all the trolling you could do with false reports on people's videos? Mark my words, this is going to be seriously abused.

Let’s say you’re watching your friend stream something via Facebook Live and they say something that worries you. You’ll now be able to reach out to the person and report the video to Facebook, which will be able to provide a set of resources to the person while they’re streaming via Live. The resources include reaching out to a friend, contacting a helpline or seeing tips and suggestions about working through difficult times.
