Users in the US and Britain can now sign up to share their organs after Facebook introduced a tool that allows users to click on a link to external organ donation registries.
Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg announced the new feature in an interview with ABC News in the US yesterday.
In a statement to AAP, Facebook said the tool would be rolled out in other countries soon.
"We will launch to additional countries in the coming weeks and months, but we have nothing to share at this time," the statement said.
