FACEBOOK LAUNCHES NEW HEALTH SUPPORT GROUPS

Today Facebook announced that it is creating health support groups where users will be able to ask administrators to post questions on their behalf. Members of the group will not know who posts questions, but the administrators can see who made the request.

Notable Quotes: “There are a lot of people with sensitive questions [who] are not comfortable asking a question in a group where they have to tie their identity to that question,” said Hema Budaraju, the product management director for health at Facebook.
