Facebook users continuing to display organ donor status on profiles

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The social media site Facebook is helping to improve organ donor participation across the United States.

Since last May, Facebook users have been allowed to make, register and display their donor status on their Facebook page.

In just one day, more than 13,000 Facebook users signed up.

That is more than 20 times the average number of daily registrations.
