“Help, I have the flu,” is a new Facebook app by Help Remedies that analyzes your friends through keywords, posts and check-ins to find who has the flu so you can avoid them completely or blame them for not putting themselves in quarantine. The app also allows users to send a message to guilty friends and advise them on either staying home or to send some help their way.
Why I’m Curious
Though it’s not the best idea to send messages blaming your friends for giving you the misery of the flu, this is an interesting app especially when it seems like everyone is sick these days. The app may not be able to provide the most relevant information and point to the exact person who made you sick, but it definitely brings some light heartedness to the flu season and shows exactly how much information you can get from your friends’ Facebook data.
