Who Gave You The Flu? Facebook Knows!
The flu outbreak this winter is bad, and is expected to get even more severe. If you get sick...I'm sure you'd want to know who actually passed it along to you, right?
There's a new Facebook app that could help you figure it out.
It's called, "Help, I Have The Flu." It analyzes your friends' profiles for signs that they're sick.
It looks for words like "sneezing" or "coughing" in their status updates. It also looks for friends who've been making lots of late-night posts, because it figures that people who are sleep deprived are at higher risk of getting sick. Then, the app reports back to you on who most likely got you sick.
You can install the Facebook app here.
