Feedback at 5: Facebook Blood Donation

Would you use Facebook to sign up to donate blood?

Facebook wants to help connect you with blood banks and donation opportunities in your community. 

Facebook has launched its “Become a Blood Donor” page. It allows users to sign up to be blood donors, and then be notified when a nearby blood donation center may be in need.

So far more than 35 million people in four other countries have already signed up for the program.

On average someone in the United States needs a blood transfusion every two seconds.

However, only 3% of people who can give blood actually do so according to the Red Cross.
