Mark Zuckerberg: Steve Jobs Was Part of the Inspiration Behind Facebook’s Organ Donor Feature

 Mark Zuckerberg

Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently said that former Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs was part of the inspiration behind Facebook’s organ donor feature. The other was Zuck’s girlfriend. It will allow users to post on their timeline and inform others that they are organ donors. This is in hopes that it will open up awareness about being an organ donor, and push people do become donors themselves.

Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg friends. The two had their disagreements, but they spoke highly of each other, and each had a great deal of respect for the other. Zuckerberg saw Jobs as a mentor and friend, while Jobs saw Zuck as one of the brightest and once said something along the lines of there were no social networks, there was Facebook.

It’s interesting. People are sharing a lot of information these days. This is just one more piece of our lives to share with our network of friends.
