Yahoo Answers is an interesting service developed by Yahoo that allows you to post your questions using the webpage provided by the company and then receive answers from other members of the solution. Yahoo Answers is not only a service with many users because all of them are forming a social community, the solution being used in the past even by Oprah Winfrey, the well-known TV star. Answers is available for free with your Yahoo account and was developed to challenge Google Answers, a similar service provided by the search giant.
Today, Yahoo announced that a new improvement was included in the latest version of Yahoo Answers, users being now able to star their favorite questions. The new feature can be used with ease because you can star the question by pressing a simple button and then, all your marked topics will be also available from the main page of your account.
“You can star a question from either the action bar or from a question listing page. Star any question you think is high-quality and interesting, and that you would like to share. Questions that you star will appear in your starred list located on your public profile page. In addition, when you star a question your nickname will be added to the list of users who have starred that particular question. The list is located on the question’s page, and can be explored by all members of the community, allowing you to find people who are interested in similar topics and questions,” it is mentioned on the official blog of the service.
The new function added to Yahoo Answers works similar to the star function from Gmail that allows you to mark your favorite or most important e-mail message from your account with a star. This way, all the messages are also stored in a special Starred folder, so you can access your favorite messages more easily and quickly.
