Find a Donor. On Facebook!


Opening my browser this morning the headlining story was that Mark Zuckerburg has revealed a new Facebook option that allows you to search for Organ Donors.  112 – 113 million people in the United States alone are in need of a transplant. For them and their families the potential of this app to connect them with donors is an answered prayer. Others are more reserved about sharing their medical information so publicly and question the security of their records.

 

 

Myself? I am wondering if  similar applications will soon be functioning through social media. Adoption?

  1. Wow…Facebook really DOES rule the world. I have mixed feelings to say the least.
