The numbers reflecting the state of organ donation in the U.S. paint a mostly grim picture. There are 114,183 people waiting for an organ -- 18 of whom will die each day, according to DHHS. However, Facebook just added another number to the mix: 900 million -- its user base. In a new initiative, Facebook is encouraging its users to share their organ donor status. Updates about this status will appear on users' Timelines and in their profiles. The point of this push, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg wrote in a blog post, is that it will raise awareness of the issue.
No, facebook will have no interest other than helping people in need for such a thing. Very nice from them...
