Facebook doing good

Saving lives

Facebook is doing some good in the world, other than keeping people connected with friends and family. Now, you can let everyone know that you’re an organ donor. They’ve added a “health and wellness” section to profiles that asks some weird stuff, but also includes an “organ donor” box to check. More than 114,000 American are waiting for an organ donor. If you’re not officially on the list of donors, you can follow a link to find local donation registries. The hope is that this will go viral and encourage (by peer pressure) more people to become donors.

Teaching unemployed youth

Apps for Good teaches unemployed youth how to write web code, hoping they can use that valuable skill to get a job. Apps for Good recently teamed up with Facebook to teach youth how to build Facebook apps for social good, and how to market the apps. They’ll learn not only coding language, but some entrepreneurial skills as well.
