There's a new free Facebook app that can help you figure out which one of your friends gave you the FLU. It analyzes your friends' profiles for words in status updates that could hint at who's sick, and reports back to you. You can install the app at facebook.com/HelpRemedies.
This year's flu outbreak is expected to be REALLY bad. So when you catch it, there's a new free Facebook app that can help you figure out which one of your friends infected you. If only they could come up with the same thing for syphilis.
--The app is called "Help, I Have the Flu" and it analyzes your friends' profiles for signs that they're sick.
--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.
