9/11: “Honor.Remember.Reunite.” with Facebook

How are you honoring 9/11? In the social media world, #BiggestLessonLearnedfrom911 is already a trending topic on Twitter, and Facebook has created an app that allows users to dedicate their statuses in remembrance of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.

In collaboration with The National September 11 Memorial & Museum, Facebook app maker Involver has created the 9/11 Memorial app that lets users dedicate their status, update their profile photo and/or tell their friends and family how they’re remembering and honoring victims this Sunday. “The goal of the application is to honor and remember victims of this devastating attack on America, 10 years later,” explains Involver‘s Senior Vice President of Marketing Jascha Kaykas-Wolff. The app launched this past Wednesday, giving users several days to begin their personal dedications well before the 10th anniversary of the tragic attacks.

When you donate your status, the application chooses from one of 3,000 victims and dedicates each status to a single one. The database includes victims of the attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, as well as the passengers of Flight 93 and the six people killed in the bombing of the World Trade Center in February of 1993. “Coordinated with its launch, the application will be featured on a number of prominent Facebook Pages including the Pages of members of Congress, presidential candidates, federal agencies, non-profits and celebrities,” reports Mashable. Facebook and Involver are also featuring the app on their Pages.
