Facebook launches Questions product in beta ( facebo )

http://news.cnet.com

After it was spotted, Yeti-like, by a few eagle-eyed observers this spring, Facebook has officially launched its Facebook Questions product in a limited beta test--and it may have some big implications for the Web. "Millions of people ask their friends questions on Facebook every day. What new music should I listen to? Where's the best sushi place in town? How do I learn to play the piano?" a Facebook blog post announcing the new feature explained. "With this new application, you can get a broader set of answers and learn valuable information from people knowledgeable on a range of topics." About 1 percent of Facebook users will have early beta access to Facebook Questions, and it will be gradually rolled out to the rest of Facebook's 500-million-plus active users after that. Any Facebook user can ask a question from a new "question dashboard," the profile "publisher" that lets members update their statuses and add photos, or through the search box. They can tag their questions with category keywords, too, and those tags will eventually be used to fill up an aggregate "questions" tab on relevant Community Pages on Facebook.

Facebook Unveils Beta 'Questions' Feature ( facebo )

http://www.pcmag.com

Facebook on Wednesday introduced a beta program that lets users pose questions to the community at large. Facebook Questions will let its users ask questions on a variety of topics. Do you need restaurant recommendations? Want to know what the best smartphone is? Use the power of 500 million Facebook users to get your answer. Facebook is currently rolling out the feature to a limited number of users, but when it does launch, there will be an "Ask Question" icon next to a picture of a light bulb on top of your Facebook homepage. Any questions posted via Facebook Questions are public and visible to everyone on the Internet, Facebook said. All your friends and their friends will also be able to see your questions, so this might not be the best forum to make particularly personal queries. Facebook, however, envisioned the feature as a place to ask more innocuous questions. The site also added the option to include a poll or add a photo. Want to know what kind of flower is growing in your backyard? Take a photo and add it to Facebook Questions. Which game console should you buy – Wii or Xbox? Create a poll.

Have a question? Facebook may have an answer ( facebo )

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com

Facebook Inc. officially took the wraps off of its new question-and-answer feature Wednesday. Millions of people already ask their friends questions on the site each day. This way users can get “a broader set of answers and learn valuable information from people knowledgeable on a range of topics,” Black Ross, a director of product management at Facebook, wrote in a company blog post. The feature called Facebook Questions gives users a way to tap into the “collective knowledge” of more than 500 million people, Ross said. The questions, and the answers, will be public so anyone on the Internet can see them. The only way to ask a question privately is by posing it as a status update on your profile. That openness is reminiscent of other services that let people ask and answer questions. As we wrote earlier this week, major Internet players and start-ups are experimenting with how to quickly route people to the answers they want, some by connecting them with people with specific expertise or knowledge. Think of the effort as a way to give everyone their own personal search engine.

The new, revamped MSN homepage is now live. Updated on Tuesday, November 3rd, this hugely popular internet portal sees 100 hundred million visitors per month who comes to read news, watch videos, and get other local information like events and weather. Yet despite its popularity, the portal has not seen a major overhaul of its design since 2004.

If you’re not a regular visitor to the site, you’ll still be able to tell at a glance that it’s undergone a number of big changes. Nothing has been left untouched – even the butterfly logo has been revamped!The new site opts for a much cleaner look. Gone is the blue background surrounding the white space, replaced by a completely white background instead.

On the main page, the lead stories are promoted by large, attention-grabbing images while other news items appear below as links.
