Facebook, GE launch Olympics app
Tuesday - 6/19/2012, 4:36pm EDT
NEW YORK (AP) - Facebook and General Electric launched an Olympics-themed app to get people to share health goals with their friends, from eating better to exercising.
Called HealthyShare, the free application gives users health challenges inspired by Olympic hopefuls such as basketball player Kevin Durant, sprinter Michael Johnson and swimmer Summer Sanders.
Users can share health and fitness goals they achieved through the app. Goals range from going for a walk to eating healthier or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. The app also includes rudimentary workout challenges from the athletes.
The idea is to get people to share fitness goals and inspire their friends to do the same.
