We like Google here at Marketing Pilgrim. Oftentimes it’s because they doing something to madden the online world so we can write about how silly they are. Other times we wonder why they aren’t doing more. And on occasions like today, we point out something good.
With the earthquakes in Japan there is a tsunami alert that has been issued. Google is using it’s traditionally message free home page for search to alert the world. That’s well done.
It’s easy to poke holes in a company that is doing probably too many things at once but it’s important to recognize when they use their power for good as well.
Let’s pray for the people in the regions under these alerts and hope they stay as alerts only.
Update: Google has also put a Person Finder into effect
