Facebook soon to roll out a new update to Facebook which brings some changes & it also helps to connect blood donors with recipients.The Facebook new feature helps recipient & donor to get in touch with each other in the easiest way.
Connect blood donors with recipients
Hema Budaraju, Product Manager, Health, Facebook, said,”All information such as blood group, whether they have donated blood before, among others, will remain private and set to ‘only me’ by default, but people can choose to share their donor status on their timelines”.
She also said,”In many countries, including India, there is a shortage of safe blood. There aren’t enough people donating blood to meet the demand of people who need it.In many cases, this leads to patients and their family being responsible for finding donors to replace blood in the blood banks or hospitals”also “So we spoke to blood banks, large and small hospitals, non-profit organizations, health industry experts, potential donors, and people who have used Facebook to find blood donors to get a complete understanding of the ecosystem and the challenges… to ensure that what we are designing will be useful to people in India”.
In this once a request is created, Facebook will automatically notify blood donors who may be nearby. Donors can then contact the requester directly through WhatsApp, Messenger or a phone call.
