The bright side of social networks

Apart from the negative sides of that we know all too well, social networks also have a bright side. Facebook is currently demonstrating this, as well as a social conscious, by encouraging people to become organ donors.



"The actual change on Facebook's part is small. Starting today, users in the UK and US can go to their timeline, click on "Life Event," select "Health and Wellness," and add the new option "choose Organ Donor" - said Zuckerberg last year.

One year later and the American Journal of Transplantation has affirmed that researchers found that an additional 30,000 people signed up to be organ donors in the US in the first 12 days of the initiative

Apparently the initiative is going well and promoting the sensitivity of this delicate and important topic. The doubt is if over whether the campaign can have long time effects. What are your thoughts about this? Let us know in the comments below.
