What are Facebook Questions?
Facebook Questions are simply a basic Q&A feature developed by Facebook. The new feature will be similar to sites such as Yahoo Answers, Ask and Wiki Answers. The main purpose of the feature is to allow a platform for users to Q&A on the Facebook site. The questions which are asked will be broadcast with the same distribution as a wall post would enjoy.
Who cares? I mean seriously, is this a revolutionary feature? I think not. Seeming to agree with my sentiment, there is a note on the Facebook apps page stating, “We think it will be as exciting as Facebook Photos and Facebook Events…” Both of which, while important, are not at all amazing, although I will say that the photo sharing element is pretty cool… The issue is that the Facebook questions functionality already exists to some degree. You can easily ask a question on your Facebook wall anytime. In fact, it is one of the main strategies to stimulate interaction.
Facebook Questions & Search Engine Optimization
Future of Facebook Questions
As of right now we have no idea what the future has in store for Facebook Questions, I mean let’s be honest, it hasn’t even been launched yet and it is still in beta testing so what can we really know? As with most Internet based features we really won’t know much about it until we can actually try it. While this is true, one thing is for sure, Facebook Questions has many implications from a social media marketing and search engine optimization perspective. But only time will tell what it really has to offer.
