Facebook has introduced a new feature which allows users to declare organ donor status. By creating a life event, users can now create an online record when they decide to become an organ donor. The move is aimed at helping millions of people around the world waiting for organ donations for transplants. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says the inspiration came from people who have been using Facebook to solve a lot of social issues. He added his girlfriend (who is studying to be a doctor) and Steve Jobs (who benefited from an organ donation) were also sources of inspiration. The feature is not yet available in the Philippines, but Facebook will be rolling out this feature worldwide once they have setup proper links to organ donation registries around the world.
