Facebook has activated its safety check feature to enable people in Nice to identify themselves or others as being unharmed after Thursday's Bastille Day terror attack.

Safety Check automatically sends users in an affected area a note asking if they are safe.

When a user clicks on "yes, let my friends know," the tool then notifies their Facebook friends.

In a statement, a Facebook spokesperson said: "We hope the people in the area find the tool a helpful way to let their friends and family know they are OK."
