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.

First they want all my info, now they want my kidneys. I have a real issue with any medical information being incorporated into a site that actively sells your information. While I have no problems with them asking people to be organ donors, linking to those sites means they can track who goes there. Next thing you know they will put up a notice about colonoscopies. I can see the tag line now:

"When was the last time you were anally violated? It could save your life."
