Now users can get personalized health reminders on Facebook. Facebook has recently launched a preventive health tool, which will remind users about health care tests and screenings. The new health tool will inform people about cancer screenings, heart checkups, and flu vaccines. This preventive measure will help people to diagnose problematic conditions before they become chronic. This new feature will pass the information based on your age and sex. Facebook has launched a new preventive health tool in the United States, which primarily focuses on cardiovascular health, seasonal flu, and cancer screening. This will remind users when to get a flu shot and where you can get your cholesterol test done.

Facebook has associated with the American Cancer Society, American College of Cardiology, American Heart Association, and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to create this tool. This feature has been made with the best and most accurate resources and information. The health tool is only available in the United States of America as of now. Users can access this tool by clicking on a promotion, which might appear in their news feed. It provides personalized information regarding user’s preventive health care. People can access more information regarding the recommendations and accordingly set the reminders to schedule their checkups if required. Users can also share this tool with their friends to increase awareness about preventive care.

Most of the health measures recommended by health tools on Facebook are covered by insurance. Preventive health tool identifies some of the federally qualified health centers across the nation where anybody can get certain tests and other health care services. This will mark Facebook’s second venture into health care features. The social media platform launched its local blood donation drive in June 2017 in the United States. Well, it is uncertain whether users will be involved with the new feature as Facebook has been facing privacy issues for a long time where personal data of approximately 50 million users of the social network was exposed.
