launches Quora-like questions for brands launches Quora-like questions for brands


This video was bought to you by SitePen and Viadeo. – the social interaction engine that works out who are the most important connections in your social network, has today launched a question like feature aimed at users who can ask brands questions.

You can ask a question on your own personal page like Quora, but what makes the awesome questions feature awesome is that you can also raise a question or discussion on a company page.

I Skyped founder Elias Shams to ask him how it differs to Quora and other question asking sites.
