Influenza Tracking Project – Now You Can Talk about it on Facebook
Posted Apr 28 2009 12:14pm
If you have the flu, Swine or otherwise and want to talk about it to help researchers, here’s the place on Facebook. Information will be tracked by your IP address. You can even participate if you don’t have the flu too, just remember who reads all of this and mines the information, everyone. BD
At the National Institute for Health Innovation at Auckland University, we’re running a new research project looking at using Social Media to track flu symptoms. We’ve written an application for Facebook that allows users to input whether or not they have flu symptoms. We’ll then track the users over the weeks to see how long their symptoms last and track their location by IP address.
