Charity Wants to Use Facebook For Blood Type Matching

Facebook Wants You To Send Hotness Points, Your Blood Type

I'm annoyed enough with Facebook applications demanding I send some random quiz to eight more friends, then eight more on top of that, just to find out which Sex and the City character I am or what American accent I have — I still don't know, since I generally tend to spitefully close the Facebook tab when I've had enough.

Therefore, I'm skeptical (and a little skeeved out) by the news that a New York charity, Takes All Types, wants to use Facebook to find blood type matches.

Takes All Types is seeking to utilize the potential of Facebook's platform, even though all I'm thinking is that I can barely keep up with who's added whom or updated what to their profile, let alone if they're O Positive. I'm reticent to put my relationship status on Facebook, and it wants my blood type? Back off, Tech Dracula.

I couldn't agree more about the new "quiz" apps on Facebook. I just ignore them... and have told my friends they can send them to me, but I won't take a "what criminal personality" or "what type of underwear" are you quizzes. And no way are they getting my blood type. Only my doctor knows for sure...

Hmm, that's a bit weird. I, too, have become annoyed with the incessant notifications to add applications. I just ignore pretty much every one I receive now. I'll definitely be clicking ignore when this comes around. Creepy!

I agree, I hardly use facebook anymore because of all the applications. Although, I never really got the appeal of the site anyway.
