The newest Q&A site
After launching last year, Quora took the web by storm, creating a legitimate place for people to ask a variety of questions and it continues to be a strong community with a large following devoted to the useful conversations on the site. Today, Beepl.com came out of private beta as a community wherein experts can be followed rather than having to dig for questions to answer.
Right now, as with any new community, most of the chatter is either about Beepl and its usefulness or lack thereof, and technology. Most early adopters focus on their own interests, and most early adopters are technologists, so the culture right now is not the same as how the culture will evolve as the community goes mainstream.
Beepl is a way to demonstrate expertise in public or private about your profession or even hobbies. Below is a quick tour guide of how to get set up and it could not be more simple. Additionally, we have included screenshots of the actual network so you can get a feel for it before jumping in.
We recommend focusing on pertinent information and not getting distracted by your “Beepl Rank” and march off to answer a series of irrelevant questions. As an Editor, I plan on using the platform to ask questions to business professionals about what challenges they are going through and how they are overcoming challenges, and because I am known in tech circles, I will likely answer technology questions, particularly about product preferences.
If you are a marketing professional, don’t go answering questions about your favorite television, and if you’re a Realtor, don’t go answering questions about cities you don’t live in because Beepl is based on semantic search of your areas of interest based on your social networks with should match up with the information you are disseminating on the site.
