By : |March 10, 2011 0

BANGALORE, INDIA: Search giant Google is out with hands to find out more about the whereabouts of people missing in the Japan tsunami.

It has released its Person Finder application to trace people caught in the Tsunami.

As per media reports, apart from English, the application is also available in Japanese and can be used to inform about missing people during the Japan earthquake.

Official reports a magnitude 8.8 earthquake hit Japan, approximately 400km away from Tokyo at a depth of 20 miles in the Pacific Ocean. The Japan earthquake has led to a tsunami in social media too, which was flooded with tweets, photos and even video footages.

It is the second time in the space of a month that Google has deployed the service following a huge earthquake which hit the New Zealand city of Christchurch in February.

Google is allowing bloggers, news organizations and, presumably, travel sites to embed the system for the people on their own sites, using a few simple lines of code.
