Taking advantage of the global reach of Facebook, Socialblood connects people who share the same blood type and serves as a go to place to quickly locate blood donors in emergency situations.
After witnessing the difficulties of getting hold of blood transfusions for a four-year-old girl in his native India, Karthik Naralasetty sprang into action to make blood more accessible by founding Socialblood. A facebook app in addition to eight facebook groups divided by blood type, Socialblood makes it easy to save lives by simply entering in your country and blood group information and letting the social networking site do the rest.
