Glamour Shots and Organ donation on Facebook?

Remember Glamour Shots? Those awful pictures from the 1990's that had the soft focus, bad lighting and all the props and big hair? Well I came across a list of the "12 Ways To Achieve The Very Best Glamour Shot". It's pretty comical. Check it out.
Sometimes I complain about Facebook because I waste so much time on it, but now I want to give them props for doing something really neat. You see, Facebook wants to help you share your organs. Users in the United States and the U.K. can enroll as organ donors via links to official registries on the world’s biggest social networking site, said CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The links should make it easier for people who want to donate their organs to sign up. Facebook users who are already organ donors can add that information to their profile page, now known as their timeline. Zuckerberg said his friendship with Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, who had received a liver transplant before he died last year, helped spur the idea, as did talks with his girlfriend Priscilla Chan, a medical student. More than 112,000 Americans are waiting for organs and 18 people die every day from the lack of available organs, according to Donate Life America, a nonprofit that is teaming with Facebook. That's gets a thumbs up in my book!!
