Following on the heels of Facebook’s enabling its users to share their organ donation status, the social networking site has teamed up with GE Healthcare to launch a new health app –  HealthyShare.

The app, the launch of which coincides with the start of the London 2012 Olympics,  allows people add health and fitness goals to their timelines, and includes a range of fitness and diet challenges.  Leveraging the popularity of health apps and fitness trackers such as MapMyRun, the new Facebook app also features workouts sponsored by Olympians Michael Johnson and Summer Sanders and Olympic hopefuls Kevin Durant and Alex Morgan.
