Microsoft was forced to affirm its unrevealed project after some web pages went to town about it. Windows Live QnA is planned to compete with Yahoo Answers Social Q&A Search service.
Betsy Aoki, Community Program Manager at Windows Live made the news official on the newly created QnA blog.
Windows Live QnA gives us an opportunity to showcase unique knowledge – provided, filtered, rated and approved by human beings – not available anywhere else. QnA allows people to ask questions of their knowledgeable friends, family, classmates at school, professional and community peers in a way that others around the world can benefit from the answers. We want to build the biggest, friendliest and most helpful community of smart humans the world has ever seen. Some people will love the fame and recognition that answering questions will bring them; others will appreciate getting answers quickly and easily.
Topics will range from business, health, arts, sports, technology and more.
• Does ivy kill trees?
• What's a good, inexpensive moving company in Seattle?
Ultimately, QnA will be deeply integrated with Windows Live Search, providing a rich, integrated searching service – enabling you to search and find answers on the Web, or from experts on a given topic as part of a vertical search experience.
