Facebook adding tool to help organ donors 'share' life

Are you an organ donor?

You can now share that information to your Facebook timeline.

More than 100,000 Americans are waiting for an organ and Facebook has 900 million users around the world.

Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he was moved to help after seeing the site's power.

“In Japan people were using Facebook to locate their friends and family,” said Zuckerberg. “We thought, okay, can we do anything that would help people solve other types of issues, like all of the people who need organ donations?”

Zuckerburg said he was also influenced by Apple founder Steve Jobs who had a liver transplant and his girlfriend who's an aspiring pediatrician.
