May 04, 2018 / ERIN DIETSCHE
Facebook has made another move to emphasize its interest in healthcare. At its F8 developer conference earlier this week, the social media giant announced it is expanding its blood donations feature. Last fall, Facebook unveiled a tool that allowed people to sign up to be blood donors. It initially rolled out in India and later expanded to Bangladesh and Pakistan. Asha Sharma, Facebook’s head of product for social good, said more than 8 million people have signed up thus far.
