Companies collecting Health data is not a new idea. Facebook is rumored to join the latest health / fitness data craze through talk of a new healthcare related app that would allow communities who suffer from disease or illness to connect online. Apparently, they will also be releasing a health app under another name.
Why do you think Facebook is wanting to know our health data? I understand Google and Apple want this information so that they can create wearable technology such as Google Fit. I wonder what Facebook has planned...or do I not want to know?
