Social media boosts organ donor recruitment

The Chicago Tribune reports that social media is playing a hand in getting more people to sign-up to be organ donors. Individuals who are in need of a donor have begun to use Facebook to find a match. Though this may have legal ramifications and potential abuse among those working in the black markets for organ donors; overall, the use of social networks has been a helpful tool.
