One of the main social networking sites that connects million of people from across the world is now, connecting people at the heart. Facebook has now improved the settings, where over 900million users across the world can share their organ donor status with others, if they choose do so.Sharing the status of organ donor is believed to help spread awareness of organ donations across the world.
According to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Chief Operating Officer Sheryl Sandberg, “Medical experts believe that broader awareness about organ donation could go a long way toward solving this crisis,”. Across the world there are more than 114,000 people in the U.S. are waiting for a transplant, according to data from the Department of Health and Human Services. By simply showing that you are an organ donor on Facebook, you could save others tons of time that they spend actually trying to find organ donors. This one change of status can connect people all across the world and help millions of lives all in a few clicks on Facebook. Personally, I believe this is one of Facebook”s greatest ideas and I believe it can help thousands of people and really make a difference in many lives across the world. I am in fact an organ donor and will be changing my status soon, so that one day someone can be helped with less hassle and more hope!
