In its latest frenzy to personalize and get more popular with its users, Facebook has finally rolled out Questions. What good is it? Primarily worth nothing, simply gives a new word or phrase to the status updates and ensures maximum user participation, the idea simply put is about divide and better engage users of the social network.
What’s different her is that previously users could only post a status update on their homepage and nothing else, the latest design gives users the options to post a status update, ask a question, add a photo or share a link with friends. I guess it’s nothing than just simplifying the Tabs on top of your status bar and giving users a much quicker link to the mentioned Facebook functions.
This isn’t new and it lets you do exactly what you had been doing on Facebook since its inception. You can modify privacy settings as usual and share what’s the most recent happening at your side.
Access the numerous options on Facebook when it comes to sharing photographs. You can create an album, upload photos from your hard drive or simply take a quick snap with your webcam. The benefit here is that you don’t need to leave the profile or homepage like you previously did and share photos with connections staying where you are.
Post A Link
You can already do that on the status update, but if you are really into putting this up as a link specifically.
Ask A Question
This had been in test for quite some time and as already said, the feature enables Facebook to better engage your friends, friends of friends and it does something more sinister. If you notice the underlined section, Facebook makes your question available for all, meaning everyone can see it and quite obviously it is available for the search engines as well.
Given how users of the social network crave sharing statuses, news, links and questions, it is surely a smart move from Facebook to roll this one out. But honestly it only brings benefits to Facebook, primarily for the fact that most users worry about having their content available to public search engines and they would preferably want to keep this question thing amidst friends and their own trusted social circle.
What do you all think about this? Is it going to be one feature that people would love to use
