Facebook now matching organ donors, patients

In search of a new organ? It could be just as easy as logging onto Facebook, according to an iHealthBeat post. A new "Health and Wellness" section of the social networking site allows users to list whether or not they are organ donors, and connects users to donor registries based on their listed home state. According to a California Healthline post, the new Facebook functionality caused a spike in online registrations to the Golden State's organ donation database of more than 1,300 percent from Monday to Tuesday. Facebook said Tuesday it was on pace for more than 100,000 of its users to register to be organ donors. Post
