Worried About The Flu? Try This Facebook App…

Lauren

It’s that dreaded time of the year…FLU SEASON! And this year it’s shaping up to be one of the WORST we’ve seen in years, with Texas among five states reporting high levels of flu illness by early December.

According to the New York Daily News, if you happen to catch the flu there’s a new free Facebook app that can try to help you figure out which one of your friends infected you.

Hmmm ok…so just how does this app work??

Well the app is called “Help, I Have the Flu” and it analyzes your friends’ profiles for signs that they’re sick. For example, it looks for words in status updates like “sneezing” and “coughing.” It also looks at people who’ve been making lots of late-night posts, because it figures people who are sleep deprived are at a higher risk of getting sick. Then the app reports back to you on who most likely got you sick.
