Internet & Networking "Starting today, users in the United States and UK will be able to add that they're organ donors to their Timelines, and if they're not organ donors, they can find links to official organ donation registries and instantly enroll." A commendable effort, but for some reason, I find it quite creepy, too. What if you leave your Facebook open and someone enlists you? On a related note - if you're not registered as a donor yet, please consider doing so. It might save someone's life.

extremely creepy!!

I dont have a FB account. But I carry a donor card in my wallet:)

All should be donors unless they dont want to, and not the other way around.

That would save a lot of lives, less paperwork, less time for organs to be extracted etc etc..

Would stop facebook from making money or whatever on these things also.

I would rather give a part from my dead body to someone who needs it to survive, than giving it all to the worms.
