Yahoo! Answers & Answers.com Working Together; For All the Answers!

Yahoo! and Answers.com have announced that the social media driven question and answers content from Yahoo! Answers will now be integrated into Answers.com. Yahoo! Answers has more than 60 million users globally, and will now be providing Answers.com users with a rich supplementary source of community-generated questions and answers on almost any topic, according to Answers.com.

From Yahoo! PR : “The combination of Answers.com information from over 100 trusted encyclopedias, dictionaries and thesauruses with human insight from the more than 60 million Yahoo! Answers users will help users augment reference information with real-life experience.”

“While it’s terrific to use Answers.com today to find detailed, factual information on any given topic, we are offering an even more powerful user experience by tapping into the collective wisdom of one of the Internet’s largest communities,” stated Jeff Cutler, Chief Revenue Officer of Answers.com. “Following on the heels of our acquisition of FAQ Farm, incorporating Yahoo! Answers is an additional step toward our goal of creating a dynamic educational experience and a single destination for people to find their answers.”

  1. Collective wisdom is a powerful tool in that it’s a great way to answer questions, engage users, sort and ranking content, and foster communities. The company I work for –Wize.com- has applied the collective wisdom to product reviews and ranking, so far we’ve been coming up with great results. It will be interesting to see how the applications of CW will continue to evolve in the future. Kudos to Yahoo for taking the first step!
