On the National Blood Donor Day, Facebook launched a new feature that allows people to register as blood donors. The new feature has been sending out notifications to all the users in India asking if they want to register as a donor.
Once registered, Facebook will inform the donor if someone is looking for the same blood type in the neighborhood. The company has also given the option to reach out to the person using Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp or via direct call.
The new feature will probably help people getting blood in time and solving the blood shortage in India. If the feature will work or not is still uncertain but Facebook’s efforts are to be appreciated. Do let us know in the comments section if you’re signing up to be a donor.
