You can now personalize and filter Q&A content on Ask.com with our new Browse by Interests tab. This means, once you create a profile on Ask.com, we will automatically ferret out questions and answers related to those topics, and showcase those in the My Interests tab in the Browse Q&A section. If you allow us to grab profile info from another social network – say Facebook or LinkedIn – we will also use that data to personalize the My Interests tab.
This personalized experience is part of our larger vision for what Ask.com Q&A is about. The more we know about you the better experience we can deliver – that means things like intelligent routing so your question is delivered to the person most qualified to answer it first. The ability to follow people who consistently provide highly relevant questions and answers on the site also helps you customize your experience. And now, the ability to filter your experience to reflect the questions and answers most pertinent to your life takes that one step further.
And if you’re not yet part of the Ask.com Q&A beta, download our mobile app, or go to http://www.ask.com/invite for an invite.
