State of Affairs 4th May 2011
We at HealthEnclave are working very hard to make this one of the leading & most trustable sources of Health information for users worldwide. In our endeavor we have some to make a few Mantra's (Philosophies) on how HealthEnclave should look & feel like. Here are two for now -
(1) De-clutter - From the very beginning HealthEnclave has strived to be clean & clutter free in it presentation & navigation. This is something which one of can achieve overtime. It's an ongoing process & it always at the back of our minds as we develop and expand this portal.
(2) Advertisements & Content Don't Go Hand in Hand - One of the things that frustrates us anything the most is to see a Leading Health portal trying to distract users from the content which they are reading, by forcing ads on them. We have a very clearly defined policy of 1 advertisement per page ! The space on the top right hand side column is where users will see advertisements across the website. And we have no plans to change this philosophy. We will never put advertisements inside the content & try to mislead the readers into clicking disguised ads. This is one of the most shameful of acts a trust worthy Health portal can do to it's users. Imagine reading a interesting and informative on weight loss. No imaging (well you don't really need to) reading something like "Loose 10 pounds now" in middle of the article. Disguised such skillfully that you might mistake this to be a part of the content. But it's not ! It a link to some website trying to sell you a weight loss product which probably does not work. This is something we are against & we will try to keep HealthEnclave neat & clean and 1 advertisement per page.
State of developments -
(3) The Forums - we have just revamped the forums in the website. The forums have been elegantly themed to match the website & make it easy for you to talk and discuss topics of interest. Your HealthEnclave login works across the website including the forums.
(4) Facebook login & lots more to come soon - We are in midst of a MAJOR overhaul of the website & have many new section under development. One of the minor features is to allow out readers to login with their Facebook accounts. This will allow people to seamless connect with HealthEnclave & actively participate in the community.
Apart from there here's a sneak peak for few things to look forward to -
(a) Wellbeing Section - Healthy recipes to dealing with breakup. The upcoming wellbeing section will help you the most of everything you enjoy doing.
(b) Medications Section - Search any drug just by the brand name. We will be supporting USA, UK & India initially & more countries will be added to our databases later.
(c) Secret Section - We are developing Top secret section at health enclave which will make everyday Health related much easier for you with a Click of a button. More details to follow in a few weeks time.
(d) Writers - We have currently 5+ writers working on developing content for our readers. We are recruiting more writers so that we can actively expand out content.
So there you go. That's a snap shot of how things are. Will keep you update on the state of affairs are we have more details to share. You should look forward to the interesting features that we are currently developing and shall be releasing to the public by the end of this month of the 1st week of June.
