    a little bit, but instead of that, that is great blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.

    Review my web site: outstanding automotive

    1. Hi Carrol,

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving your response. We grasp a lot before publishing any of the post on our blog.

      Your website is giving me an error related to bandwidth limit.

  2. Nice to know that Facebook is finally doing something better. I had been thinking that Facebook will just keep playing the same old tricks and finally vanish like just any other social networking platform.

    By the way, it’s a pity that many people think quora is a great platform, but in reality, it is files with users (so called experts) that give just as opinionated answers as anyone could and generally stay miles away from actual research. Stack Exchange network had a much valuable user base that at least care to research before throwing any spam, and the community and moderators usually ensure that quality is maintained. Wikipedia is good but far from a reliable platform because of its openness to let anyone edit any article. There are much better libraries that host a plethora of research articles (i hope there is no need to mention any, but still, ieee and science direct are 2 good examples).

    With this approach of Facebook it may work for some curious users but not for most people.

    1. @Anonymous, the one of the major reasons why FB is surviving is because of the constant innovation that they are doing. You are right to a great extent about Quora, most of the people are self proclaimed experts there; however, there also live real experts like Robert Frost, Jimmy Wales, Dustin Moskowich, Alon Amit and many more.
      Quora isn’t going to replace Wikipedia anytime, it supplements that. And yes if FB is combining such a feature then as mentioned by the author of this article, users are going to find convenience of Wiki and Quora on FB itself.
