Any regular user of Facebook has probably came across Ebola headlines in their news feeds. Now news about how Facebook itself is fighting the disease.
On Thursday the company announced three initiatives: a "donate" feature appearing in users' feeds, targeted public health information and communication services in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.
That donate feature will allow users to donate to the International Medical Corps, American Red Cross or Save the Children. They can then share the fact that they donated.
