Facebook Wants To Help You Donate Blood To The Needy

If you are Indian, then let me tell you, the country faced a 17% shortage in clean blood during 2013 and 2014. In India, there is always a shortage of safe blood.

To celebrate the National Blood Donor Day, Facebook had taken few initiatives to help find nearby blood requests. If we look around, Technology is a pleasant gift where we can store millions of data, click pictures, talk face-to-face. However, the technology is unusually inspirational when it’s implemented to address important social issues.

As we already mentioned, India faced a 17% shortage in clean blood during 2013 & 2014. Data released by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare claims that this shortage could profess a huge problem for patients that require a lot of blood.

Facebook had taken few steps to connect blood donors with those who in need of blood and nearby hospitals. Facebook users can sign up to be the blood donor on the mobile version of a Facebook app.

Information regarding blood donation will be private because it was set to “Only me” by default. Users who are in need of blood can create a post to notify nearby blood donors of things like where the blood is needed and why and of which group.

So, this is indeed a great step from Facebook that will promote the way people volunteer to become blood donors and possibly save lives.
