    Do you want facts or opinion when asking questions on hubpages?

    When you ask questions that can be answered with either facts or opinions which one do you usually want in the answers?

    There are advantages to both. If you're asking a question that you don't know the answer to then you might want solid provable facts in your answers so you can make a firm stance on the issue.

    If you already know the answer to the question, but you just want to know what others think you may want to ask for an opinion. Maybe you want to know how popular your opinion is. Maybe you want to know what people in general think on the issue.

    Which do you usually want?

    I may want to know both facts and opinions. Facts will give accurate knowledge whereas opinions can improve my knowledge under various circumstances.

    I usually designate in my question whether it is opinion or fact oriented. Hopefully this helps to avoid some confusion when people begin to answer. I do believe, however, that some people find it very difficult to separate fact from opinion. It can be irritating when people expect you to accept their unsupported opinion as cold, hard fact.

    I do appreciate those who are able to answer fact-based questions with supportive, verifiable facts.

    When asking questions on HubPages I want opinions based on the person's experiences or personal facts. I want personal information that I can't get from a book or a search engine. For example when I ask a question about exercise I want people that exercise to provide an answer based on their experiences. I don't want them to provide me with an answer based on what somebody else said or wrote.

    I would like to hear both. As you rightly said, both have their owns values. When looking for information, facts help more than opinions, but if we are discussing a view or a concept, opinions are definitely interesting.

      True. Glad that you also feel like me.
