Yahoo Answer is more than a simple service that allows you to post questions and receive answers from other users of the solution; it represents a huge community of members that are helping you every time you need their answer. It is quite useful because you can find interesting answers that can be rated and starred, if you want to save them into your favorite answers section.
Some time ago, Oprah Winfrey, the American TV star, posted a question on the giant portal’s service, asking what you would do with $1000 especially for donations. At that time, thousands of users answered the questions, representing a real success for the Yahoo service.
Today, another world-class star posted a question on Yahoo Answers asking: “Based on your own family’s experience, what do you think we should do to improve health care in America?” At this time, the service provided by the giant portal says that 34638 users answered the questions with more or less detailed messages.
Moreover, many users are sustaining that this posting is a political strategy of the company that is looking to join the domain using a well known personality in the United States. Because the giant portal anticipated this situation, its employees posted an advisory saying that Yahoo is not aiming to create a political campaign by improving Hillary Clinton’s image.
“Yahoo! Answers Staff note: Yahoo! Answers is a forum for people from all over the world to engage with one another and to find information on topics that interest them. This is not an endorsement. We are not siding with any candidate or party — in general or for the 2008 US elections. We’re hopeful that people from all perspectives will realize the great insights that the Answers community can have, and will turn to us for future discussions,” it is mentioned under the question posted by Hillary Clinton.
