Facebook tries to do some good in the world

Carly Weeks in the Globe and Mail:

Facebook hopes its new measures may help others facing suicidal thoughts or extreme psychological distress before it’s too late. But will it make a real difference, or is it just a token gesture to deal with a high profile problem?

I tend to be cynical about Facebook, but I’m finding it hard to be cynical about this move. It looks like they’re genuinely trying to be helpful.
