Despite being the 4th largest population in the world with 250 million people, Indonesia still faces the problem of blood supply. Blood banks are often in short supply, because blood donation is not popular here. Many people who need urgent blood transfusion often find themselves in desperate situation where they have to procure blood themselves. Sadly, this situation has claimed many lives.
In recent years, people have turned to social media for help, hoping their friends, followers, or even strangers to spread the news. The problem with this approach is it’s always in a matter of urgent time frame, and a lot of uncertainty in the response. Also, spreading requests on social media has a severe problem on trust. Many people are reluctant to answer a request from strangers, questioning its legitimacy or authenticity, even suspect the requests as spams.
Total Facebook users in Indonesia of 69 million, obviously the expected target would be to reach out to all to participate in Bloodbook. People just start joining Bloodbook and hype is building in social media. For now the total number of participants are still small but it is growing as many may not know their blood type as yet. Most importantly is that with the campaign being viral and being spread in the social media world. At least Bloodbook managed to sign up Indonesia’s Vice President, Jusuf Kalla to be one of the few first to participate in Bloodbook.
Application is named “Bloodbook” for easy recall and association with “Facebook”. We developed Bloodbook to do the following: it registers user’s blood type, then connects with other Bloodbook users in our Facebook friends. Immediately tell which of our friends have similar blood type and hence can become both potential donor. Vice versa, we are expected to be donor to our friend. Fill in contact information so we can be reached when friends need blood donor. When need of blood, just click ‘request blood’ in the app. Immediately send notifications to all our Bloodbook Facebook’s friends who have similar blood type.
