Many health apps include social elements and seek to build online communities. Some succeed and thrive, while others languish. Why?
My fellow panelists, Jenn Sprung (@mindthecompany) and Bruce Baskerville (@CrushTheCrave), and I (@colleen_young) explored this question at Apps for Health (@appsforhealth) on May 16.
I shared best practices of Community Management That Works – How to build a thriving online community. Bruce presented the app Crush the Crave as a Case Study – Successes and lessons learned integrating social in a health app. And Jenn reminded us Don’t Forget the User – First-hand stories from the hand that holds the app.
