Update: Facebook questions has now been released.
Back in June 2010, Facebook was asking people to post some questions and answers. I thought it was going to be something like a Yahoo Answers clone. But 6 months down the track, Facebook is getting ready to launch Facebook Questions. If you visit the Facebook Questions page, you will see a message saying that Facebook Questions will be available to everyone in the US within the next few weeks.
If you would like to know more about Facebook Questions, the Facebook Help Question section covers everything that you need to know. The key points to make is that all Facebook Questions will be viewable by everyone, however, you can just ask a questions to your friends. On your profile page, you will also see a link that will list all of the questions and answers you have made. One final thing, just like Photo’s and Events, you cannot opt out of using Facebook questions like you can with other applications.
If you would like to read Facebook official announcement of Facebook Questions, back in July, you can do so here. That page also shows a few screenshots of what Facebook Questions will look like.
So, now that Facebook questions is only a few weeks away, are you excited for the release of it? Are you going to use it? Do you think it will kill Yahoo Answers? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
