Facebook has begun releasing the blood donation tool for Android and iPhone (iOS) applications. The function, developed in partnership with blood banks in various parts of the country, aims to facilitate the meeting between donors and institutions that need donations, in addition to increasing the overall number of collections.
Once registered on the Facebook platform, the user will receive notifications when a shortage is identified at a nearby post. Learn how to join the campaign in the following tutorial.
