Tag Archive: Facebook Timeline


Social network giant Facebook just announced the addition of a new feature called Organ Donor to their Facebook Timeline.

On its own Facebook sharing organ donor status page it says:

“More than 114,000 people in the United States, and millions more around the globe, are waiting for the heart, kidney or liver transplant that will save their lives. Many of those people – an average of 18 people per day – will die waiting, because there simply aren’t enough organ donors to meet the need. Medical experts believe that broader awareness about organ donation could go a long way toward solving this crisis.”

The obvious hope for the new feature is that awareness of the need for donators will become more widespread, and to further boost this, Facebook is also adding direct links that will allow interested members to register as an organ donor in an attempt to try and save more lives across the country/globe. The new features will fall under the standard Facebook privacy guidelines, meaning that visibility can be restricted through the usual manner.

Finally a great move from Facebook that is going to benefit many people with their health and one that will make you proud to be a part of.
