I’ve gained a lot of new followers over the last couple weeks. Not from Facebook or Twitter, but from Quora. What is Quora?
If you create a hybrid of Twitter and Yahoo answers, you have Quora.
There are a number of question-and-answer sites online. Formspring.com made a solid run, especially with the younger crowd, early last year.
Quora is really focused on finding the experts and seems to have a real shot at being a go-to social media location to establish yourself as an expert.
Will Quora replace Twitter?
Twitter is a media stream. People do answer questions on Twitter, but it’s more about sharing information.
For photographers, specialists and small-business owners, Quora offers a great new platform. The site and concept are more complex than Twitter. Like anything, it will take time for people to figure out the best use and strategy for the platform.
Stay tuned. It’s early.
