I looked through my bookmarks and found Quora was still hanging out there. Does anyone use it? Anyone?
Is this a stupid question I should ask on Quora? Will the experts there have any answer that makes sense and will fill my head with knowledge. Or it just turn into a self-promotional fight of social media expert ninja gurus trying to prove to me that they are on Quora so I need to be on Quora or social media as we know it will become meaningless and useless.
Screw it. Iâ€™m going to hang out of Twitter where the self-promotional bullshit doesnâ€™t come in the form of an answer.
Shouldnâ€™t the headline read: Who still cares about Quora?
Yeah, I messed that up.
They got lots to improve! still a little messy and too little users and traffic. Perhaps 160k a day? Compared to answers.com that have more than 40million a day
Yeah, the design is so-so and doesnâ€™t engage me.
Also, the topics that arenâ€™t related to tech are filled with crazies.
I started using it to see what the big fuss was about and after a few (like 2 I think) answers I forgot about it. I donâ€™t like it. I like Twitter though cause I can spy on you there ðŸ˜›
Itâ€™s all about where people can stalk me, isnâ€™t it?
I was reprimanded for just putting a link back to my site and a sentence of text. I guess I should have written 4 paragraphs of bullshit as well.The site just seems like a place where the social media “elite” can hang out and pontificate about their crap and be even more pompous.
you nailed it here:
“self-promotional bullshit doesnâ€™t come in the form of an answer.”
God forbid any information lives off of Quora, and has references to actual research. Or you just donâ€™t want to write a five paragraph blog post over again.
Holy shit I hate Quora. I want it to die a horrible death. I saw an entire article written about the benefits of using Quora the other day and almost barfed. I exclaimed my disgust in the comments. Of course they didnâ€™t bother to reply to me but replied to everyone else who praised the person for “such a good idea”.
The article even said that you could become an authority on Quora and actually get clients! “WTF,” I said. “Thatâ€™s like me going to Yahoo! Questions, answering a whole bunch of poorly structured questions within my field of knowledge and then expecting my client ratio to rise by a million just cause I answered a couple questions to people who donâ€™t give a crap about who I am or what I do.”
I donâ€™t know a single person who uses it, thank god.
I mean, Yahoo! Answers, whatever.
Quora smelled like a big turd from day one. Horrible design. StackOverflow platform still rules!
Seriously. Quora is the most worthless website Iâ€™ve seen in quite some time. Half of their questions are stupid Justin Beiber questions or other pop-culture garbage. What a joke!? Horrible content, absolutely nothing of actual value to anyone. . . avoid at all costs!
I hate quora.Once I wanted to be a member out ofÂ curiosity.You canâ€™t be one just like that!!A moderator messaged me telling my name sounds fictional, that I must furnish my real facebook ID, and unless I do so in 2 days my account will be cancelled.Like I give a damn!!Never went there again.Itâ€™s full of people who think they are better than us plebs.Contrast it with Yahoo Answers.I have found the smartest and friendliest people answering questions there, not to mention the not-so-smart who are welcome on Yahoo Answers with fictional fancy names and try their bit to answer and question.
