From the Health On the Net Foundation Newsletter, March 2013

The latest issue of the Health On the Net Foundation newsletter (March) has, in particular, items seeking feedback on proposed Web 2.0 guidelines for HONcode certified websites, and on Recent Updates Regarding the HONcode: New Guideline for Before-after Pictures.

Give Your Feedback on Rules Used on Forums, Blogs, etc.

In May 2012, HON asked for opinions on the proposed Web 2.0 guidelines for HONcode certified websites. Based on the invaluable feedback received, HON has made some modifications to the proposed guidelines.  By conducting this follow-up survey, HON aim to find out whether the modifications have improved the proposed guidelines regarding usefulness, clarity and practicality.

HON would like to ask you to fill in this follow-up questionnaire, which will take about 15 minutes. The questionnaire (available in English and French) will be online from March 28 to April 15, 2013.  >>> Access the survey <<<
