Waaaaayyyyy back in April 2013 we submitted several questions to Quora, a much-hyped “answers” site that purports to be “your best source for knowledge” (clearly we beg to differ). At the time, we thought that Quora might be useful to our customers and participants, giving each greater opportunities to connect with the other. Unfortunately, the experiment yielded no useful results. But wait! Last week we actually got a response to one of our questions! Drum roll please… Well done, Quora, we only had to wait NINETEEN MONTHS for this vague and poorly-written response. Meanwhile, the Maven platform delivered detailed responses to this question from qualified experts in a matter of hours. Simply put, if you seek true professional expertise on demand, Quora is not “your best source for knowledge.” Maven is.
