NHS Organ Donation Campaign — Learn Social Media By Example

NHS Blood and Transplant helps save thousands of lives every year.

As one of the three arms of NHSBT, ODT’s key role is to ensure that organs donated for transplant are matched and allocated to patients in a fair and unbiased way. Matching, particularly in the case of kidneys, is so important that donation and allocation needs to be organized nationally. The larger the pool of organs, the better the likelihood there is of a good match.

Facebook Addiction Clinics to Open in the US… Rumor?

As if it wasn’t bad enough that Internet users were becoming so hopelessly addicted to the Internet in general, pop goes the weasel; Facebook! Facebook discretely takes over your life and alienates you from society. Some people really need therapy!

Flipbook: The iPad iMagazine

With more than 3 million iPads finding their hands into consumer hands, it had comfortably found a place for itself in the musical chairs game of consumer electronics. The way fans and consumers have reacted to the iPad defied critics who proclaimed that the device didn’t fill a need, and it is simply an over sized iPod that could double as a colored Kindle. While that view is absolutely true, the iPad proved that in the eyes of the consumer Apple can do no wrong and they would sacrifice a limb to get their hands on the latest Apple gadget even if doesn’t even work as is the case with the latest iPhone.
