A new service that allows Facebook users to ask questions of others signed up to the social networking site has been launched.
Facebook Questions aims to tap into the collective knowledge of the 500 million people on the site, with answers to queries popping up from people’s friends, as well as other users.
The application is in its testing stage at the moment, so will only be open to a limited number of people to begin with.
All questions and answers posted on the service will be public and visible to everyone on the internet.
Reacting to the news, Danny Sullivan, editor-in-chief of Search Engine Land, explained that users of SEO services may want to keep a close eye on how it performs, especially given the fact that there are several other Q&A services online, such as Yahoo Answers and Ask.
“The space is well worth watching, especially in how the smaller search players and new entrants seem to be making gains past the more established companies,” he stated.
