The last thing that comes to my mind when I think of Facebook is health. Therefore it comes as a huge shock when I hear that they may be creating an app for health-related problems on their website. This is rumored to serve as a community that will allow people suffering from few disabilities and ailments will be able to connect with one another.
This will serve as their way of trying to help the community in a certain way. According to me, Facebook is a huge platform and using it to help people solve their problems is commendable. Many details have still not come to the forefront about this application they are trying to develop but they are known to have met with a few medical experts to better build the app.
This is a time when Google and Apple are both trying to build health and fitness apps for their users. Apple has launched its health app for its iOS 8 users whereas Google is still constructing Google Fit for people using their Android gadgets. However odd it may seem that Facebook is building a health app, it surely will increase user engagement on their website.
