“Like” if you Want to Save Lives

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg revealed an ambitious plan for the social media service. on May 1, 2012, he announced Facebook’s addition of the organ donor option to users’ Facebook timelines. The tool has already been implemented and is intended to be an easy-to-use way for someone to sign his/herself up for organ donations. Furthermore, choosing to volunteer will also send a message on your wall and status that lets Facebook friends quickly click and opt themselves as well. Some proponents like Anne Paschke and blogger Brittany Darwell are content that it gives people the important option and spreads awareness on a major health matter. The addition seems sound because people can customize privacy settings for their pages and will be able to keep track of the notice.
