If, like me, you’re still trying to figure out what Quora is and how you can use it you might not find this video Infographic very useful in that respect, but it might just help you see where it has come from and where it’s going:
I found the fact that they’d stopped commercial/corporate accounts interesting, meaning that questions, answers, and ‘upvotes’ really are from (hopefully) individuals with the knowledge. The big question I’ve heard about Quora is ‘how is this different from Wikipedia?’ and I can see Quora is about the here and now, it does not seek a balanced or neutral viewpoint, it aims to cover emerging knowledge which have no point of reference, and that it’s strength is in it’s users (as everything is these days).
Do you use Quora, and why (or why not)?
Here are some other resources to help:
