Boston: using Twitter, Facebook in hunt for stolen bikes
On the Net:
Stolen Bikes Boston: Community Alert: www.stolenbikesboston.com
BOSTON — Boston is launching a new program designed to use social media networks like Twitter and Facebook to track down stolen bikes.
The goal is to alert as many people as possible — including police, repair shops and other members of the cycling community — as soon as a bicycle goes missing.
The person whose bicycle is stolen can quickly fill out a form describing the bike, when and where it was stolen, and even upload a picture.
In about three minutes a blast is sent out to followers on Twitter and Facebook.
Anyone can opt into the program — called Stolen Bikes Boston — by following the alerts on Twitter or becoming a fan of the program on Facebook.
