Therefore, to meet this sense of urgency, Facebook has launched a new feature for better connectivity of donors, patients, and hospitals. Hence, when there will be a request post for blood, it’ll be notified to the blood donors available nearby.

Facebook has designed this feature in such a way that it’ll automatically prompt on the users’ profile. If a user signup as a blood donor then it’ll be set to private by default, though users will have the option to share their donor status on the profile. Facebook added that this feature will be made available in Android and mobile web initially as they are the majorly used platforms in India.
