Social media is playing a significant role in organ donation registration.

A new study looking at Facebook users has found that an organ donation initiative resulted in a 21-fold increase in people registering themselves as organ donors on the day the initiative started.

John Schieszer reports in today's Medical Minute reports that states such as New York and Texas, where organ donation rates are among the lowest, had some of the biggest bumps on the day the initiative started.
