We all know that the best questions and answers can be found in Yahoo Answers. Regardless of how stupid your question or doubt may sound, somebody has probably asked themselves that same question before you and set out their matters of concern on the legendary web page. But if you've got an iPhone, and iPad or an iPod touch, and you want something more serious and formal, we recommend you to turn to Quora. And here's why.
The best answer to any question.
How does it work?
Quora works just like a social network based on questions and answers by other users. The main difference with other similar web pages is that its users are certified and those that provide you with the information are professionals. Policemen, lawyers, astronauts, waiters, engineers... they all give you their particular internal and professional point of view about the facts you're wondering about.
Get to know inside information about different sectors from real and reliable sources.
Furthermore, there are all sorts of questions about all sorts of topics, but always from a serious and participative point of view: education, engineering, nutrition, sports, philosophy... You can enter discussions, leave your opinions and questions or simply browse through those of other users. Using the search engine, you'll be able to find different topics of your interest and even follow them to receive notifications whenever there's an update. From your personal channel, you'll be able to add your professional credentials and degrees to make your opinions more trustworthy, as well as being able to check your stats and contents. A rather different app that adds a cultural and interesting point of view regarding other social networks.
If you get fed up of Quora or you want to move onto higher standards, you can delete your account without any problems. Your profile, photos, bio, answers, comments, blog entries, votes, supports, and messages will disappear from the social network. However, bear in mind that the questions you may have asked will remain visible since they are now part of the community. To delete your account, simply go to your privacy settings, choose 'Delete account' and confirm your decision. You've got 14 days to change your mind before you disappear forever.
