About Quora

Quora’s founders Adam D’Angelo and Charlie Cheever vision was to “share and grow the world’s knowledge.”

which resulted from their belief that:

  • A vast amount of the knowledge that would be valuable to many people was only available to a few — either locked in people’s heads or only accessible to select groups.
  • they wanted to connect the people who have the knowledge to the people who need it
  • to bring together people with different perspectives so that they can understand each other better
  • and to empower everyone to share their knowledge for the benefit of the rest of the world.

Quora was initially a billion-dollar social media startup, funded in venture capital as a crowdsourced Q&A platform reliant on the community to provide questions, responses, and up and down votes to create, edit, and organize its growing platform.

It’s active users range from celebrities, CEOs, and other high-profile figures and reported $8 million in revenue in 2018, with more than 300 million unique monthly visitors.

Initially, Quora had no revenue model and like most portals, it shifted to earning money through the advertising market by strategically placing ads to appear as part of the content rather than acting as an overt marketing tool.

It took the Quora’s platform 9 months, of development for its portal to gain traction as its employees invited friends to join the site.

Quora’s success is due in part to

  • its elegant user interface,
  • its initial base of intelligent and committed participants
  • its effectiveness in highlighting the most useful and interesting content personalized to individual users
  • Quora democratizes knowledge on a platform accessible to all,
  • The crowdsourced Q&A platform is run entirely by the user community.
  • Users post a diversity of questions that is followed and offer responses.
  • The Quora community then votes on an answer, either up or down, similar to the popular social platform Reddit.
  • The answers with the most upvotes are highlighted and viewed the most.
