Social Media Can Help Save Lives?

Some may think that spending too much time on Facebook is a bad thing, but a recent study shows that social influence can sometimes do some good.

Facebook made a recent update to allow users to post to their profiles whether or not they were organ donors.  When Facebook made this change, 13,000 people registered to be donors the next day, according to a study from Johns Hopkins University.  The normal daily average for organ donor registration is just 600.

Next time you have a good cause to support, such as a fundraiser or charity race, be sure to post it up and get the word out!
