Facebook has a omnipresent personality,a platform where people of all age groups are active in any of the following forms:Creators,Critics,Collectors,Joiners,Spectators and inactive’s.It has a rampant use in most of the sectors like marketing, human resources, non profit organizations, event promotions, and a lot more. Few sectors,that are not much active with FB would be banking and security.But as such these sectors need more security confidentiality.
However now even Indian police has started making good use of FB and twitter to catch law breakers and reckless drivers.They are even using it to spy on college kids party plans.The Delhi Traffic police informs the residents about traffic congestions and other traffic relations news via Facebook and twitter.They use social media platform to tell the public about regular updates and address the public’s complains. Their Facebook page has more than 18000 fans.See this:#mce_temp_url#
With this new developments, the residents would also be able to report violence and accidents happening in their near by areas by updating messages on FB and twitter.They also operate a website:http://delhitrafficpolice.nic.in/

This would indeed bring pressure on cops to be more efficient as they now know that they are being monitored and they have to perform.
Surely the use of social media platform would work in better traffic management,reduce traffic congestions and accidents.
