Facebook is set to launch a new feature in Bangladesh, which will link blood donors and the ones in need.
The new feature in the world’s largest social media will bring blood donors, people and organisations together, said a press release on Monday.
Facebook will launch the feature from Tuesday, said the press release.
Bangladeshi Facebook users can sign up as blood donors in this new feature.
People can edit their personal profile data to show that they are willing to donate blood. To avail the same service, Facebook users can visit facebook.com/donateblood.
The social media will also show a message on people’s newsfeed to encourage people to donate blood.
Web formats, Android and iOS will support the new feature in Bangladesh.
Under this feature, when people are seeking donations, they will be able to create a special message and spread the word. Facebook will automatically notify the blood donors about the need.
