When those events happen our role is to report relevant information as fast as we can so that users can be informed and, hopefully, reduce that sense of fear and uncertainty generated by lack of first hand communications.
During last months we worked hard to improve the freshness and quality of our search algorithms by leveraging new clustering algorithms which work in multiple countries and multiple language.

Thanks to all the teams (Beijing, Bellevue, and London) who made this possible working together for a global market and a better service offered to world wide users.
