Yahoo! Answers has app babby and calls it Answers Now
Hit-and-miss nature of questions is part of the fun of one of the oldest Q&A sites
Apocalypse now: you are as likely to find a question on zombies as on the relative merits of Android tablets and the iPad.
Running since 2005, Yahoo! Answers is one of the oldest crowdsourced question-and-answer sites around. Although it must be noted that the questions (and answers) can be a little hit and miss. The site gained notoriety in 2006 when a user named ‘kavya’ asked: “How is babby formed?”. Whether these kinds of questions are the work of trolls, dolts or a sorry mixture, it is safe to say that you’re just as likely to get this kind of question as one on the merits of Android tablets versus the iPad.
The thing is, this is part of the fun of Yahoo! Answers, which is now available in app form as Answers Now. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to read the answers for “Is there a spell to become a mermaid that actually works?”. One lady asked Yahoo! users if her baby was really hers because it didn’t look like her; maybe her boyfriend was cheating on her, she reasoned.
