The company is now rolling out a latest feature specially intended for a kind of exchange while Facebook users have been posting questions and giving answers to their friends on a diversity of topics for years.
The company said that the feature is now being slowly made active for all Facebook users, named Questions and since previous summer, it has been in partial checking.
The expectation is that the requesting of questions and the presenting of responses will now be tagged that way, therefore activating an exact border and functionality specially intended for that procedure, as different to doing it as normal standing updates.
Adrian Graham, a Facebook Questions product manager, wrote “Like many of our products, Questions originated as people began using Facebook in a new and unexpected way. People would update their status with a question, and their friends would answer in the comments. We saw this and began thinking about how we could make this interaction more useful.”
Questions is intended to create the procedure of posting queries and responses suitable and quick. For instance, it allows users reply several questions by just clicking on a choice or as an alternative really typing in an answer. Moreover, to increase the pool of possible respondents, friends of a friend who reply a question are as well given a possibility to post an answer.
It is already for how many years that it is been popular the online services that let people ask questions and post answers, but the agreement is that there is up till now to be a persuasively suitable model for performing this.
For instance, search engines have given a break at this with assorted degrees of achievement: Google unsuccessful with its Answers product years ago, but its achievement of startup Aardvark in early 2010 shows it hasn’t given up on this space
In the meantime, Yahoo Answers has charged much improved and Ask.com has redesigned its search engine about this question-and-answer model. People as well way out to online discussion forums to connect in this Q&A exchanges.
It will be motivating to observe if the company be able to influence its huge network of personal connections to finish up having the chosen online tool for questions and answers as Facebook Questions turned into broadly accessible on the site.
Previously one other social network, LinkedIn, has a Q&A feature, even though that location centers on job-related, expert communications, providing it a center that by and big is more complementary than going beyond with Facebook.
