Facebook will soon launch a new and exciting feature related to the Health of the user. It seems like Facebook has planned to follow the footsteps of Apple and Google in terms of Health.
The company is working on a support community which will connect Facebook users are experiencing different kinds of ailments. Moreover, a panel is also trying to create a new app of “preventative care” which will assist people to make their lifestyle much better.
After a few months the company is planning to collaborate with some other medical researchers and entrepreneurs in order to arrange a new health app.
Healthcare was already the chief concern of Facebook, but it was delayed because of some other important issues.
Lately, the social networking site owners realized that this healthcare app will definitely increase the revenue of the company.
The popularity “organ donar status initiative” scheme encouraged Facebook to introduce an entire new app for the users. In 2012 the company launched a scheme in which people had to change their profile pages to state whether they wish to donate an organ or not. Almost 13,054 people of United State became a member of that online scheme.
Therefore, Facebook team observed that a large number of people search Facebook with the intention of getting advice from other users. Moreover, the creation of patient network like PATIENTS LIKE ME shows that people easily share their symptoms and discuss their medical condition with strangers.
However, the company would not allow pharmaceutical companies to promote their drugs on Facebook. The most difficult task for Facebook would be to ensure the privacy of the users.
The most interesting thing is that the company would launch Health app with another name like Instagram. A large number of people still unaware of the fact that Facebook is the real owner of both Whatsapp and Instagram.
