Do you love how Hub Pages (and other sites) have become more like Facebook and Yahoo Answers?
I don't know how long the Q/A feature has been on Hub Pages and LinkedIn.
I also don't know if Yahoo Answers is the first of its kind as far as THAT style of q/a goes....
Well, I think that from my perspective it's nice to connect with other writers so yes, I enjoy the parallel
I personally do love it. Its a great feature that lets writers communicate with each other on a more personal basis then just commenting on hubs.
Many people feel intimated by others sending them personal messages so it's a nice way to start a friendship with somebody
also shared information is great.
Why do it somewhere else like Yahoo Answers instead of here!
Yes i think it is the way forward. It is a lot easier to interact with fellow hubbers and share articles
I am not so sure if I want to compare HP with either FaceBook or especially Yahoo Answers. I do appreciate the interactions but HP is not a Social site.
I don't think you know what you're talking about. HP is nothing like those other sites.
Actually hubpages.com made me forget about yahoo answers and Facebook. I got tired of fake relationships and security issues on Facebook. And, yahoo answers doesn't really give enough feedback, plus the users are often rude and careless. I found a community of writers with talent, manners and class on hubpages.com. Thanks to you all and enjoy your holidays.

I have a suggestion. Lately, I've been participating in Yahoo Answers. I try to answer any question I have a thought about, especially those that I have experience with. I have answered several questions that coincidently have hubs about similar topics, and in my answer, I provide the tracking link...

I started using yahoo answers a while ago, with the long haul to level 2 so I can post links. What I am now wondering is does anyone have a rough idea of how often, and for how long you can use yahoo answers to promote one hub?I've been maybe answering a yahoo question on average once a day for the...

Do you think Q&A Sites like Yahoo Answers, Quora etc. would help increase your traffic?

Hi, I have been writing here for about a month and am looking for ways to increase traffic. I read somewhere that answering on Yahoo Answers and posting a link to a relevant hub can be a good way to increase traffic. Does this actually work that well? I'd be really interested in hearing people's...

I think I may have found a solution to the Yahoo Answers problem.They may have blocked Hub links in your answer, but they still allow them on your profile.I noticed someone else referring the questioner to her profile for more information. Sure enough, I can post links in the 'About Me"...
