Goodbye to the summer and warm months, with the arrival of the winter season (which in effect does not usually arrive at least until December) it is time for constipation, cold, sore throat, flu. The media are those that extend the information provided by medical services and soon Facebook will take care of your health with its new function.
Facebook warns you of the latest health risks
Surely on more than one occasion you have seen in typical health centers and hospitals the typical announcements about disease prevention campaigns. Parents are the ones who are most concerned about their children’s health, just as they care about the elderly. Some are simple reminders that can help you not get the typical cold, others ask for help like blood donation campaigns, while others are more severe warnings related to more serious diseases.
Preventive health reminder
Many of these campaigns are starting to move from WhatsApp groups to Facebook walls and that’s why Menlo Park wants to engage more seriously in this. His initiative is called Preventive Health or Preventive Health. It is a section of the social network that shows the latest news on the campaigns of nearby health centers, as well as warnings of possible diseases.
With the arrival of the cold the first campaigns against the flu arrive and they want to warn how important it is to take measures against it. To avoid this, Facebook will provide its users with emergency assistance services and the nearest pharmacies to acquire medicines. It also allows you to echo more specific campaigns like a blood pressure test or blood donations that require the hospitals that need it.
At the moment, this feature is available in the United States, but like many other features it is a matter of time expanding in the rest of the world, especially if it is a feature that can be beneficial to everyone.
Another point that Menlo Park has made clear is that data on preventive health remain at home. That is, they are not shared with companies like insurers or pharmaceutical companies, but the same company manages them. It is the user himself who decides to check the data stored by Facebook, like the reminders of an appointment to participate in a prevention campaign.
At first glance it would seem to be a useful function, obviously we’ll see, like all things its positivity is linked to the way it is used. Hopefully it will be used optimally and positively for society and will not become a means to spread unfounded fears by spreading a kind of social hypochondria.
