Why Facebook Questions?
As Facebook is doing good on social networking and recently reached 500 million active user base then why they re adding Questions over there? Here are some valid points for this question,
- People using status for asking questions. Now if you want to have a public question then create I from Questions so that it will become a knowledge base for everyone
- No community is as huge as Facebook, so there is a chance to get more response for a question on Facebook
- Make your Facebook account more interactive
Now Facebook Questions is available on few users and some of them feels that the application is awesome. But some of them are having some suggestion about the application. For example, the published questions should have a better look on wall of the user as currently it appears as a link only. But anyways, Facebook is adding more and more features to social networking platform and after Facebook Stories, this Facebook Questions is a new addition.
