A new Facebook initiative may help increase the number of organ donors in the US.
Researchers at Johns Hopkins University collaborated with Facebook to add a user's organ donation preference to their profile. When a user changed their status to organ donor, they were given a link to register with their state.
On the first day of the Facebook initiative, there were more than 13,000 new online organ donor registrations.
