Quora is a question-and-answer forum that allows members to ask questions that other members may attempt to answer. The best responses to the questions are from people that have first-hand knowledge of the topic in question, though anyone may choose to respond. Quora encourages members to list their education, work, degrees or titles and other qualifications, to inform readers of their background in responding. That can be helpful, as it indicates the basis of knowledge that informs the respondent’s answers (though I find that common sense can trump formal education and degrees in producing quality responses). Quora also offers members the opportunity to form pages to discuss topics that might not be of interest to the general membership but interests a smaller number of people. I think some of the motivation for that is to reduce conflicts between members with very different points of view. The big weakness of Quora is how it’s moderators police the site, with some members allowed to make strong statements or hurl insults and their content is not deleted, while other members might have their responses deleted for similar or even less offensive content. Quora is run from San Francisco and thus is a site that caters more to Liberal ideas and thus plays favorites. I wish that were not so, but it’s life.
After having used the Quora app for about two years, I have come across a few annoying issues that really ruin the experience of the app. Firstly, every time I open the app, I have to wait for the app the respond to my touches. It can take anywhere from around 10 seconds to almost 20 seconds. I don’t know what it’s doing in the background, but it’s annoying. Next, when I want to search for a question, it seems to freak out and freeze the whole app. It opens the keyboard, and I can type on it, but there is a massive delay from when I press a key to it being displayed on the screen; it only happens when I open the app after not using it for a while. Next, very often when I am scrolling down through my feed and I tap on the “read more” on an answer, it doesn’t respond to my touch as if the read more button doesn’t exist. I can tap and tap as many times I want, but it will not open the answer. Tapping on the answer itself does nothing either. This happens randomly and I don’t know why or what triggers it. The last issue is the most annoying of them all. When I’m reading the comments, and I accidentally swipe left or right just a little bit, the whole app with hang and not respond at all. I have to manually close the app and reopen it again so it can work. These issues sometimes hold me back from even opening the app. Overtime, it seems that more problems are being made than fixed with every new feature update.
Hello I just want to convey my opinion and appreciation to the people that read QUORA. I just recently came across the site and realized that people were asking questions about an area I have substantial experience. I have no problem conveying my experiences, opinions and suggestions in hopes that it will help the readers in some way which will benefit them or someone they care about. Being incarcerated is not a pleasant experience in my opinion but through the years I have learned a tremendous amount of knowledge that has helped me to change my life, extend my life and enjoy it in much more rewarding ways than being locked up. It’s a real shame to see these young men 17, 18 , 19 years old commit crimes that will send them to prison for decades or their whole life. I am sure it is a real wake up call for them once they arrive but then it’s just too late. I also felt bad for the young men who have lost their lives serving our country in Uniform. It is the ultimate sacrifice a young man or lady can do to help defend this country and maintain it for the rest of us to enjoy. Fortunately I had the opportunity to serve this country and not have to give my life in its defense to which I am grateful. I enjoy conveying my experiences on this website and I hope it can help some of the readers. Thank you
I found Quara accidentally by asking Google what I might have done wrong in my marriage to deserve the horrible treatment I received for 22 years.. Quara popped up with, I was married to a narcissist! I had no idea all those years and finding that information gave me great relief. I felt a lot better knowing that I did not do anything wrong to deserve that. I have been reading Quara for about 15 years now. It really helps to hear what others have and are still going through. When I was seeking information, my husband had died a few months earlier. Of course he was divorcing me right after my mother died. He actually died 7 months later when he had put me into an apartment and taken off to Mexico with a stripper from an 18 and older strip club in a neighboring city. I was able to keep everything! Could have turned out way different! I feel the Lord was watching out for me. It’s been a long hard road to recovery. I know I can’t fully recover from it but I am getting somewhat better with the depression but trying to get back in the swing of things like I used to isn’t going to happen.. but I’m loving and living life on my terms now, how I want to and it is very invigorating ! I look forward to every new day being happy, happy, happy!
Totally backward on COVID but many personal interest pieces are worth it
Unbelievable to preponderance of people asking over and over about vaxing, variants, masking, social distancing - all long ago being proven ineffective, with a veritable ARMY OF impassioned (Biden / Fauci-followers?) to keep the narrative going and attack those like me, unvaxed 63-yr old COVID surviving somewhat overweight man who constantly posted the Israeli study showing 2 years ago that recovery gave 28 TIMES vaccine protection against Delta when it came… but the personal / family situation / informational pieces are often wonderful; little-known historical, WWII articles by citizens, even chemists who made sure my contention that USA natural gas, not windmills, & Chinese solar—is the logical next energy step as 40% less carbon per BTU are produced than with liquid fuels - when I asked them how much energy / vs carbon is produced by natural gas (methane) fuel. Let’s not even get into the left destroying clean nuclear with the help of Dan Fogleberg, from my youth ! So, now that a each of repeat covid questions has finally settled down im back to to replying to a Quora post today ! About childhood trauma of adopted children - I’m going to recommend 12-step “Celebrate Recovery” Christian programs nationwide to them
I have generally enjoyed reading Quora. The ancient history section is particularly interesting for me. Today I read an interesting piece on politics called the White Elephant in the Room which discussed how people in forum should take a breath and relax and show respect and truly read what colleagues are saying. He suggested people might actually change their opinion on certain matters. I remember when I would drive from my home in New York to Yale University, I would listen to an Evangelical channel. My colleague it’s whom I shared an office asked me why. I need to know what people of a very different opinion think The section on education is overly repetitive, and most of the questions could be answered by a simple google. Though there is a great deal of repetition in general, there are some interesting points and opinions. I don’t know if this site has an administrator (which it needs for the repetitive questions) or works by some algorithm. Anyway, no one is forced to respond to every question that might be one’s area. The atmosphere is relaxed and have not seen any disrespect or nastiness that are part of other forums.
You can only see one side of any question or comment! If Trump is so horrible then you are saying 1/2 of Americans are stupid why can’t you just accept a difference in opinions & not go on & on about his looks, personality, he was a businessman who didn’t know nothing about how things were done in Washington now that he knows how corrupt the swamp is perhaps he will fit in & run the country the rest of the way into the ground. Quit calling your fellow Americans stupid because they don’t believe the way Democrats believe I have been a Democrat my entire life until I see the obsession & hate they have for one person. I am no Trump supporter but thank God I am no hater & only want to talk about Jan 6th & if he wanted to over throw the government I think he would have had it planned a little better instead of getting one of his supporters who was a veteran killed. Omg! Move on! Educate yourself on something like birth control instead of my body my choice it’s 2023 no need to kill babies it’s not the 1800s if you want the government to be in control of your life keep voting democrat & while you at it read up on their history. Make a donation to Black Lives Matter, steal another $1,000 worth of merchandise & walk free, Americans are homeless & starving but let’s feed some more immigrants & bad mouth Trump. All of you are so perfect I guess no of you need a prayer!
used Apple ID to login and the app FORCED me to provide my email address and name anyway. It said "optional" but after many tries, 10 minutes of waiting for the app to spin after trying to skip entering an email address (defeating the point of using Apple ID to login) I entered a random email address and I was treated with several minutes dealing with captcha crap... really?! If they have so many issues controlling fraud and/or Quora isn't sophisticated enough to deal with modern threats that they require more captcha tricks than I've ever seen I'm definitely not trusting any content... and most definitely not posting or providing my info. I see the app has high ratings... it might deserve them once you jump through all the hoops and provide personal data, but after such an inconvenient and annoying process FORCING login, FORCING giving personal data and giving info I don't want to give just to read something, I am deleting. There are far too many legit platforms I can use that don't do this... I'm surprised so many use Quora... sheep I imagine. Nevermind...I just skimmed/read a ton of so reviews... they are reviewing posts on Quora not the app or experience with the app. In fact, I stopped trying to reviews that weren't about content on Quora - only found a couple about Quora itself and they were 1-star.
As much as I enjoy Quora I’ve come to despise the app. It ruins my ability to access Quora content via the website or email by blocking website content and misdirecting requests to ‘read more’ from an email. Before I had the app I would get directed to the website from a daily email I would get. Right around the time I’m in the middle of a good answer, a pop up appears on my screen recommending that I download the app. The problem is that there’s no way to close the pop up. You either close the page before finishing the answer or download the app. Useless. Finally I had enough and downloaded the app. Now my emails open the app when I want to ‘read more’ of an answer. Unfortunately the app doesn’t take me directly to the answer I was interested in. It takes me to a feed with different questions. So I give up on the email question that brought me to the app in the first place and start browsing the feed and reading an answer to a new question. Right around the time I’m in the middle of that answer, the screen switches to the answer from the question in the email. Useless. After finishing the email answer, it doesn’t take me back to the question that it interrupted me from, instead it takes me back to my feed and that question is nowhere in sight. Useless.
I stopped using the site because Quora puts up unclosable pop-ups when you DONT have the app. I downloaded it and there is nothing it can do wouldn’t be doable if they hadn’t played around with the mobile version of the site to make it less functional, AND it was slower, so I deleted it. Then I would spark up the site and get halfway through a question or reading a response and the unclosable pop up. I would exit, and it would be frustrating to find where I was. Trying to engineer my behavior in such an underhanded fashion has led me to stop using the site on my phone and my PC. I make sure to open Reddit and a few other similar sites a few times a day to get the stats up on their competitors. In making the switch, I found that Quora is much more likely to butt-in in questions and comments to engineer the conversations in such a way as to suppress free thought and any sort of disagreement that goes against the biased views of the Quora team. I really like how with reddit I don’t get notifications from Quora’s algorithm asking me to read and answer all the troll questions (there are a LOT of trolls on this site). If you are into that sort of thing, Quora is for you! Not me - I would rather actually get to see the well thought-out and politely worded disagreements with my views remain unmoderated.
Wow, just discovered it a few weeks ago and already it proves too much of a distraction! It’s given me many occasions to reflect on an issue that I know is important but maybe don’t know very much about -I have a particular blind spot re: Latin America - or it’s something I have studied but perhaps haven’t thought about in a while and thus am forced to collect my thoughts before answering. I’ve made some surprising discoveries doing that! It sometime shows me how or how much my views might have changed - strengthened in cases, weakened in others. I’ve had some very rewarding exchanges with people here. Happy to report something I wrote was apparently funny enough to make a stranger on the other side of the world pee her pants! I’ve also come across, unfortunately some disturbing questions or comments - most of which just show how deeply polarized a society can be. And then there have been a few intentionally provocative (in an ugly way) statements that I did not restrain pen or tongue long enough prevent me from replying with an uncivil post — a few of which have been deleted by the admins, appropriately in my view.
As much as I like Quora, its constant issues are annoying. Some of my answers get collapsed randomly for having “adult” or “sexual content” when it doesn’t have any. I edited one of my posts that had been out for 4 months and it got collapsed 3 minutes later for no reason at all. No matter how much work I put behind something, it doesn’t seem to matter if it gets collapsed or deleted for having a certain content that it doesn’t. I’m not the only one it happens to either. The chat is also messed up, I can’t stay in the same direct message with someone without having to reload the site because it gets slow and has an error the more that is typed. That has been a problem for over a year and I thought it would be fixed by now. Also, recently I’ve noticed a good portion of my answers and posts are blurred and I really don’t know why, and I’ve seen it on other peoples answers too. It’s getting harder and harder to want to use this broken site and I’m honestly questioning if it’s worth it due to all the constant random problems.
I use to really enjoy this app. It used to be filled with intellectual conversation and allowed users to answer or ask questions anonymously if users didn’t feel comfortable putting their names on something, because certain groups out there will try to get you fired or depersoned for your beliefs. However, Quora took features like this away, creating a need for people to create alternative accounts. Since, it has become a cesspool of trolls, lies, and honestly just trashy content in general. It’s no longer a site for discussion on philosophy or a place to ask questions for growing their knowledge. It’s now a place for people ‘asking’/‘answering’ questions to confirm their bias, blocking those who disagree with them, and censorship honestly. I’ve tried to have conversations with people who agree with me and others who don’t. Sometimes they block me, sometimes they dont. It’s not like I’m being rude or anything either, I try to be cordial and considerate most of the time. They say something like ‘Quora isn’t for debate or discussion, it’s to answer questions.’ No it’s not, or else there wouldn’t be a comments section for questions. People of Quora don’t want their opinions to be tried by others anymore, they just want everyone to agree with them in an echo chamber.
After retiring from the largest aerospace company and as a disabled veteran serving in two branches of service, I feel it is time to share some knowledge and experiences. I was privileged and fortunate enough to have a varied career in complicated, technical and not so technical processes from making countermeasure flares, work for NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in rocket propulsion, assembly of all 100 B-B Long Range Combat Aircraft at Rockwell North American Aerospace and defense electronics assembly of very bleeding edge material. Finally, finishing aerospace duties I was trained in Novell Network Engineering and conducted IT work for 25 years. I am a member of the Experimental Aircraft Association, the EAA, and various aerospace trade publications. A former hunter, I am currently shooting paper and load my own ammunition for performance and accuracy. I now also support wildlife as a member of several organizations and am dedicated to State and Federal Parks. Since even before my high school era, I have played and sang in various musical groups, choirs and choruses, and formed a Rock band 5 years ago. We are a group of talented professionals.
I would give it a one but I can at least still use the search bar and look at other people’s content
I just got this app recently and everything was going good for the first day I had it. I wrote a question I got an answer almost immediately but the next day I wanted to type another question but I was BLOCKED I still don’t know why and for those wondering my first question was about engineering, nothing inappropriate just engineering, anyway I went to find customer service but the closest thing I found was a search bar for pre-written questions I also looked online and even Quora and they all said that it was probably one of my posts offended someone but the only thing I said on there was a question about how to get started on engineering. If your reading this Quora please help my in someway so I can write questions again then I’ll probably rate 5 stars because besides my problem this app is awesome! Edit: I’m not sure if you read my review or if it was a glitch but it’s back to normal so I’m voting 5 stars
I like the app. The idea of people being able to use their experiences to assist others is a good one, because anecdotal experiences can be useful. Scientific data is not always readily available or understood as to why people feel what they do when in a narcissistic relationship, for example, or advice on how to let family members know about one’s practice of cross dressing, both of which topics I have seen addressed with compassion on the site. Lately, moderators have seemed to have vanished. Hate speech and outright lies about ethnic minorities, certain politicians in the USA and the United Kingdom abound, and the site’s rules of conduct are not implemented. It’s definitely gone downhill, but quality answers can still be found. It’s not like searching for gold in a dung heap, but it’s a frequent challenge to avoid trolls and others who like to inflict havoc with wild abandon. Quora has its uses. I hope that it will become more useful again and less wasteful of participants ’ expertise for the sake of clicks and advertising, no longer pandering to the people used to frequent sites that were rightly banned.
Lots of social media apps annoy me because I am reading something interesting, close the app for 5 minutes, open it again and the screen refreshes and often I cannot find the item again. Besides that issue, often when I’m trying to find where I left off in the comments of an answer, and I’m swiping my finger up in order to scroll to the end, I reach the bottom of the page (not the last comment, because I have not even expanded all the many comment “nests”—just the bottom of the comments visible so far) and inadvertently swipe the entire thread up and it disappears, never to be found again. Why are there no “expand all comments” buttons on many social media apps? Why does the same gesture (swiping up) both take me to the spot where I left off but also accidentally make the post I’m reading disappear? Why is it so hard to find things I started but did not finish reading (unless I had the chance to interact with it in some way, meaning it would show in my activity)? Am I the only person who finds these behaviors so frustrating? Every time there’s an update, I hope they have finally fixed these issues, but so far no luck.
Not a good app if you like writing. It used to be but not anymore.
First when you report someone for doing something like harassment or sexual stuff involving illegal stuff , there is a chance if they feel it is not a big deal your own account will get temporary suspended. Not kidding. The amount of sexual content involving catfishes or non catfishes is unreal and takes away from the professional side though it is worth mentioning you have the option to turn off adult content but regardless such accounts that post possible illegal pictures aren’t being taken down by repeating offenders. Also if someone insults you and you report them they will likely not take action but if you do the same it is likely they suspend your account as well. Again this used to be a legit and credible site now it is going down the alexa ranks fast due to the over saturated ads and repeated not so thought out questions anytime you follow a space. Ex. If you like a answer about cheese , you will see questions like “is it bad to stick cheese in my eye balls?” Another thing is the community is really toxic though you have your good apples there are more bad ones even among topics that involves science and medicine. Please do yourself a favor and find a better place to find enthusiastic writers/bloggers.
I love that I actually get real answers on this app. On yahoo answers people call you racial slurs for asking a question about Islam or I could ask “what’s the best movie to watch?” And people would tell me to F off or give a sarcastic answer and I would literally have have 28 “answers” on the question and not one of them would actually answer the question and it’s really messed up. Where as here everyone is so much kinder and not many trolls. I love this app it feels like a safe place and I could ask the strangest of questions and not one person would judge me for it. The only problem I have with this is few of my questions are still unanswered and it’s been 8 months. But most of the time they are answered fairly quickly. The other thing is I wish there wasn’t a limit on the number of letters used in the question and I wish is I wish I could comment anonymously. You might be able to but I’ve had this app for a couple of years and still can’t figure out how.❤️I definitely recommend this app tho to anyone. I absolutely love this app.
Even with some ups and downs from other people on Quora, it is the best place to talk and learn from others! Currently, I am not able to bookmark answers that I want to keep. The 3 little dots (***) are not there! Can you fix it for me please? 👍 Sincerely, Karen Thomas-McKearn August 24, 2023: I spend most of my day reading and answering questions on Quora. I am retired and doing this allows me to keep up with the world and what people think and answer for questions. I don’t want to sound like a know it all, but I can’t believe how some people give answers that are false, fake, incorrect and distorted. I try to tactfully correct them with facts and accurate updated information! I don’t want to argue, but present people with the information even giving them the locations in the Bible or the internet. I do block and mute atheists because they downvote my religious beliefs and answers so less believers can read it. I am not angry at them, but it’s not fair what they are doing. There is one atheist who is a member of a religious group and I believe he uses our names to find out who we are and then he gets involved in disputing our answers and downvoting everyone. That is really wrong! Actually cheating!! What difference does it make to him and his fellow atheists to dispute what we say? They always ask for evidence!! I have actually given them evidence and then I don’t hear back from them! Go figure!!
I love Quora—-the website that is. It’s educational, entertaining, and fun all at the same time. There are so many people who have a deep understanding of things and so knowledgeable in the way they provide their answers—-with some who are not so knowledgeable, though a lot fun to exchange replies with nonetheless. But wow a sharp decline in both quality and user friendly interface could not even begin to describe the disappointment that is this Quora. It almost feels like two different entities, where one is just a cheap knockoff. The Quora website experience, although sometimes clunky, is enjoyable in both content and site navigation. The app is like the Great Value or Wish of what the website is like. I mean the continued and almost neverending error you get while trying to even just open the app is just HORRIBLE. Then it lags while you navigate through the app screens, where many times buffering is so long it will just crash. So you try to open it again and guess what? Ahhh of course the neverending error of just trying to open it. I mean what a hack of an app and an embarrassment to what is otherwise a great thing.
This has happened to me a couple of times in the past week and just now. Both before and after I upgraded my IPad to iOS 15. So I don’t think the upgrade is to blame. I am typing a response and all of a sudden my keyboard becomes unresponsive. I start tapping different spots in the paragraph just to get the cursor moving. Nothing, then suddenly the cursor will just jump to a spot or end up highlighting everything I just wrote and then everything disappears. All my carefully thought out points to answer the question are gone. It just happened to me a few minutes ago. However this time I was able to take a screen shot of what I wrote in response to a Quora question before it all disappeared. Completely unacceptable. Now I don’t know if this is an Apple issue or a Quora issue but it is certainly is an issue. I would like to point out that this has not happened to me while writing in any other app nor while I am typing this review. Please fix this. I will update my review once it is fixed.
Cute response to say the least!; Nevertheless, isn’t that the “Belly Of The Beast?” At least to say in a shameless Cliché [(Which I’m quite allergic to by the way) A platitude of which you can not reuse for it is a name of a Book I wrote as a look into lazy hazy ways plays on words to say in rhetorical ways become an explicit bore of which I abhor (Though others might adore) Ugh! To the point, Bottom Line…so why all this shameless tacky poetry? And “irkist letsism’ True conceptual ideological approaches to stretching the mind- which Quora does so beautifully without all of the time! To exercise the Brain without causing the sensation of feeling insane! That is of course unless you want to be? It’s Paradigmatic approach in its paradoxical purity frees one’s thoughts with or without Irony close to infinite wisdom without judgement ask and receive answers without fear…even if like you sometimes (like maybe at this moment) someone’s expressions might batter or bruise (Metaphorically) yours Earsc🌞🙈🙈🙈🏄🏽♂️
I like quora ok but your website does not allow for free expression of thought or debate bc your website is too concerned with someone being too offended. When a person goes into the real world and have been sheltered from offensive things, how will he or she deal with job rejection, criticism from employers, people on the street telling an offensive joke, or someone getting mad at him or her and yelling with no holding back. They will need more help psychologically bc it will be a complete mental rush and may lead to depression and other things. If a woman asks “I am a single mother and cannot secure a good relationship outside of the bedroom, what’s going on?” And I answer honestly, your moderators will flag it bc it’s too offensive and this response has no name calling and just spills facts on the table. So how can someone get a real opinion if it is sugar coated to hell. My supervisors or bosses are blunt and while it may hurt feelings when being criticized to some, I find that blunt nature of my superiors to be great bc it helps learn boundaries and keeps people doing great things and creating an amazing product. Stop worrying about being offended and people will have better responses and while arguments may end up with name calling, who cares, sticks and stones.
So I saw Quora online and loved the questions and the nice well-thought answers people would give back. So I downloaded the app to ask questions myself. I got on, asked a question and scrolled through the app for a little bit and I was done. Next day I see my account says I have zero questions. I thought that was weird so I asked the same question again thinking the app just glitched. I see again today that it still hasn’t posted my question. So I go to post another one today and it says “you have been blocked from asking questions.” WHATTTT??? For what reason? I have not been using this app inappropriately or bullying anyone of the sort, so I’m highly confused. The only reason I can think of why I was blocked is because the question I asked offended one of the “Quora employees” if that makes sense. My question was “what should I say when my overweight friend asks if she’s fat?” It wasn’t a rude question, it was honest. My friend is well overweight and I’m concerned for her health and I’m trying to say something without offending her. So I’m really annoyed right now because I was looking forward to getting answers to my question. Since I cannot ask questions there is no point in using the app.
Not everyone, but the core of this site is the people who are passionate about their own pursuits. Look into the Shakespeare threads and you’ll find professors, academicians, actors, lifelong afecianados and more than a few high school kids or college undergrads trying to get the others to do their homework for them, and it’s lovely to see the occasional pedagogue call them on their shirking ways and steer them back to the proper ways. IT’S Not just the bard, of course...the other day I wandered into a thread of moterheads deeply informed on the nuances of V-8 combustion engines and how to make them faster, louder and more exquisite. No idea what they were saying, but there’s a pleasure in reading passionate savants go at it, no matter what the topic. Do you like antique watches but no one else you know gives a feather or a fig? Start a group here, or find one ready made. Nobody wants to hear your opinions on Betty vs Veronica? Poke around here, you’ll find dozens. G’wan, it’s omnispectic! Jump right in!
I enjoy Quara very much- so many , many different viewpoints and helpful hints especially about why men and women cheat, about why men keep a girlfriend from high school that they love on the side , yet because it’s so late in their life like being in their 60s the don’t seem to love the wife but want high school lover instead , about emotional and verbal abuse why women stay , about different races, music, science, human behavior , what men wish women would do and vice verse why our pets are important , backstabbing g friends, how our parents raised us and it’s affect on us years later when we are in our 60s, what love and being “ in “ love means - I’m truly addicted to this site such a diversity of topics and I enjoy trying to read them all ! It’s simply a very fascinating site that I read every day if only for a few minutes- especially subjects about why men do certain things and us women as well ! Thank you for having it for us keep it going please‼️‼️‼️‼️
The previous review was talking about political questions. Unless there was a no politics no religion ban, you will always have conjecture, rhetoric and biased points of view. It is an open forum, and aside from ad hom and foul language, people are free to speak their mind. But there is nothing wrong with an open debate that focuses on politics having spin. People are still given upvotes and if you feel an answer is wrong just don’t follow them, and if people keep upvoting bs block them too. The site is well managed, and while you can find nonsense in there..if you take the time to choose reliable people to interact with, your gonna get more reliable answers. My only qualm would be that people upvote people because of their celebrity and sometimes they make the content secondary to the topic and question. And of course being an open forum there is content that is not accurate. But these people are rarely upvotes and their content is ussually not found on your feed.
It’s a great app… It’s very simple to use and you do get responses that are at least at the medium to high range of intelligent beings lol. If you do have a question that is or isn’t about some thing mundane or extremely precise like a certain type of speaker for your home theater system, you can ask and you will get some very helpful responses. It’s very underrated because there’s no drama here, or very little. Just by the conversations and the responses you can tell the level of intellect between this app and let’s say Twitter. People don’t come to this app to be malicious. There’s always something interesting going on and some conversation regarding a topic that you always thought of but never discovered the answers to. If you like to learn and you come up against questions that a fellow scientist/explorer/treasure hunter may come up against as well, you may find some help here.
The developers really need to work on optimizing this app for power efficiency. It consumes way too much power to keep it running, even in the background (iPhone 6) You can actually watch the battery percentage drop while typing. And, needless to say, my phone gets very hot while using it. I have to quit the app, if I want to preserve battery power for the rest of the day. This is bad programming and not acceptable for an app that just views text and facilitates the editing of text. The other issue is the inability to highlight specific text while editing your post. The app will either scroll all the way up or all the way down. Extremely frustrating and ridiculous. This issue has been going on long enough and makes one wonder if Quora developers actually use the app in the real world. This wouldn’t be so bad if one could enter and format text in another app, perhaps adding style tags, then copy and paste the text within the Quora app and expect it to retain the formatting.
The app is great and works great for me. However, when I click an email from Quora to read more, it opens in safari and my feed proceeds there. Lately, not long after I start reading, I get a permanent message window, blocking the rest of the answer, telling me to download the app and preventing me from seeing the rest of the comments I am trying to read. There is no way to clear out of it. When I click to go to the app, it goes to the App Store first. By the time I get to the app, it is not on that question anymore and I don’t get to finish reading what I had started. I need to figure out how to have the email open in the app or there needs to be a way to click out of it or if I click to go to the app, it should continue where I was so I can finish the question I was reading. I couldn’t find a way in the app to leave feedback about this so I left a review here instead.
I despise monopolised requirements to provide personally identifiable information for the sake of than selling that info to affiliates of the company thus pushing the consumer to buy something they are not interested in and making the company money. The sad part is the company denies this justified malicious business practice and smothers it with legalese and candied phrases connivingly scripting the companies representatives to ignorantly state things like ‘We do not sale identity information’ but refuse to admit that they do sale public information about you; like you name, address, phone number and your family and friends that you have an affiliation with. This ‘public information’ is stolen from your profiles of your social networks like - in this case - google or Facebook, that they force you to register with to ‘access all features and provide the best possible experience’. I say monopolised because a significant number of articles are exclusively linked to this platform meaning that it’s not very productive to remove this platform if you want to stay in touch. You can’t hide these facts from me I can translate the legalese, from you terms and conditions, into laymen’s terms.
When I joined Quora I-don’t-know-how-many-years-ago, it was just pure fun reading stories and answers from across the world. Then I discovered the depth of experience and knowledge that existed in Quora, and I started looking for specific information. Next, I started asking my own questions; this had mostly positive results, but sometimes brought out crazy answers and attacks! It only got worse as time went on. I sometimes commented on answers, and gave my liberal opinion on the day’s issues. More craziness came out! I got reported for being offensive and attacking when no such thing occurred! Finally I had enough when I asked a question about Russian efforts/tactics in social media across Europe (hoping to get expert answers from across Europe) and I got a warning from Quora that I could get booted off if I asked such questions! How dare I presume that Russia had social media influencers! Enough! Now, I occasionally check on answers about cats and dogs! Sad that Quora has come to this.
I often wonder why I spent so much time reading Quora? I'm an ex broadcast news reporter, which translate in my case to be a news junkie. But Quora is opinions. That being good, bad or indifferent, it is 100% personal opinions. Not based on research, not based on interviews, but instead based entirely on personal opinion. That opinion is sometimes based on solid past experiences and training, but opinion nevertheless. I believe I am drawn to Quora because traditional journalism based on who, what, when, where and why is 85% gone. Sure, there are still examples of crew journalism, and investigative journalism at some major newspapers, and other journalism organizations. But for the most part today's journalism carries little more weight for me then Quora. But at least Quora makes no bones about the fact that they are opinion, even identifing those people making the opinion. Whereas journalism still tries to present itself as fair minded and fact not opinion. I am a leaning left moderate politically and in most of my opinions. I don't pay much more attention to CNN these days, as I do and have to Fox news for the last few years. I enjoy Quora because it is fun to read, and helps me to widen my view on the world issues because of the vastly different opinions on such a long variety of topics. Quora is not a substitute or replacement for old fashion journalism, but Quora never said it was.
I really enjoy people’s answers to questions about many things,. I like the Spanish version; I grew up in Peru and it updates my knowledge about Spanish culture and language. I really like the religion section because I get to talk to people who WANT to talk about religion. Most of my acquaintances in real life don’t want to talk about religion. Even at church we have a set way of talking about things. But on Quora I can talk with many people from all perspectives in life from atheists to conservative believers of all faiths. There is so much to explore there! I tried the app and was ok with it until something changed and the Quora screen would no longer rotate on my iPad. Every other app I had would rotate so I think it is the Quora app. I can’t type answers with my head sideways. So I had to delete the app. I guess they have a new version. I guess I should try it. I love Quora! If they would just let the app screen rotate . . .
Love has always been upon us to make a life out of us as one
Well I’m glad to see that I have some time to talk about it without being rude or mean I just want to be honest and say I have learned my lesson and that is the truth with this situation I have had enough and now that I’ve got a good relationship with myself and have figured myself out and have faith in me and my own ability to achieve whatever I so desire and all I can say is either your for me or against me regardless, you’re behind me out of my way I’ll come through me myself, and I if you’re fortunate enough to have the opportunity to get my attention as I travel through I’m glad for you and if you’re really lucky I stand out man I decide to take you along with me all your own weight be your own person don’t try to change me and most of all don’t be no biggie. I don’t need nothing waiting down.
Quora is a really fascinating site: it has most anything under the sun!
If you are curious, like things solid, honest & thought provoking, or want to explore UFO’s this is definitely the place to find out what people in many societies and cultures think on any given subject. While I don’t necessarily agree with some individuals, it’s a format where you can find things you have always wondered about but never really got a chance to study or understand … AND, if you like a “story format better than mere bits of knowledge here and there, it’s worth exploring. The only thing that I dislike is that some people are very ‘racist or bigoted,’ and lean toward react first, and over time THAT mode of answering people generates hatred & disrespect for those with different viewpoints and/or life experience. Other than that it can be a good place to ask questions or open up a new topic! Enjoy it! CM
I never have been much into politics until George W Bush was put into place by his brother Jed. That’s when I realize that the electoral college was so outdated. I believe it was initially implemented because many Americans were not able to read or write, but percentagewise I don’t believe that that’s the case anymore. I realize Reagan was the beginning of the downturn of the Republican party but Bush really started unraveling programs and policies and giving money away for no reason. So in 2016 when Trump was elected via the electoral college I was horrified. My staunch Republican friend from Colorado told me I needed to give him a chance. I told him he wanted to be king. Later I realized I was wrong. He wanted to be dictator. So when I found Quora I began my journey to better understand politics. I read it nearly every day. Your writers are intelligent, honest, satirical and spot on. Thanks to all of you.
Q&A site where questions are judged instead of answered
Do not download this app I’ve been on it for quite some time and it gets more and more frustrating every time as not only are there a lot of really dumb questions but very rarely will I see or get an actual answer to a question as it feels like I’m more so being judged for my questions rather than getting a legitimate answer from it and I see this with other people ask questions too, and not only that but I’ve also seen questions where some people will end up getting offended for no reason and taking the questions personally. The other problem is that fact that you can’t delete questions after they’ve been answered even if there’s only one answer and it gets deleted you’re still prevented from deleting the question. And I think all of this could be fixed if the app were executed better and had mods who check the app frequently to ban the people asking questions that aren’t important and the people not answering questions respectfully, also get rid of the comment section it’s not necessary and it’s only giving the trolls more power.
I clicked a link on Facebook that lead me to the Quora website. I started to read the article, but after a couple seconds, a screen popped up that told me that if I wanted to continue reading, I had to enter my email. Not wanting to give this website my email, I exited without providing any of my information. The next day, I started receiving emails from this website. The website knew my name and had compiled a series of articles that it thought i might enjoy. WHAT AN UNBELIEVABLE INVASION OF PRIVACY. I made the conscious choice to NOT give this company my email. And what do they do? Go ahead and sign me up for their email list anyway. Why even bother asking people for their email if you’re just going to access all their information through Facebook anyway? To give the illusion that you’re not completely invading our privacy, I suppose. To create a facade. I have absolutely NO TOLERANCE for companies like these. How dare you steal people’s information for your own benefit? Shame on you. I will NEVER click a link to this website again and I will continue to tell everyone to stay away from this selfish, desperate, and pathetic company.
But I sure have encounted ghost and it’s no fun here in my own home I will even take a lie detector test if you don’t believe me but yes ghost do exist and I’ve had encounters with them not only me but my son also we got rid of them through prayer and supplication exorcism and much more smoke them out white sage incense I used oils oh my God those people who don’t believe in ghost we’re among ghost !!!!!! they’re in trouble we’re at the end of time and the ghost are out out of control the shooting in schools they’re possessed the kids are possessed and they go into the games into the brain into their hearts they commit suicide they’re attacking our children believe you me your ghost and they’re everywhere and the proof is all around us and if you wanna close your eyes on it it’s your problem but believe you me the ghost are here hunting our children!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Quora used to be an amazing app where I could learn a lot about life, ask questions and receive thoughtful answers, and learn other peoples wisdom, but now the only questions that pop up on my feed are ones that are asking “what is a screenshot that deserves 100k likes?” Who actually cares? Are these bots that ask these same questions over and over again? I personally couldn’t care less about these posts because that basically makes this site a meme website when it’s not supposed to be. I find these questions in the Psychology space In quora, but what does that have to do with psychology? Do I just need to reorganize the spaces that I follow on quora so I don’t get these stupid questions or is it a lost cause? And when I try to find some actual meaningful questions and answers it always comes back to the ones that ask “what made you smile today?” Or “what disgusts you?” It’s okay if I see these questions sometimes, but if it’s over and over again then it just gets ridiculous. Especially if it’s about celebrities I couldn’t care less about
Two very big issues have lead me to delete my account as well as the app itself. First is their arbitrary and seemingly biased enforcement of their, “Be nice,” policy. What my experience has been is when your views favor a conservative or really anything that isn’t fitting with a liberal, politically correct point of view, it will be flagged then deleted. Of course it doesn’t matter that you haven’t sworn or attacked someone personally. It also doesn’t matter what was written that you were responding to. Their attacks are perfectly ok. Whoever it is that’s making these decisions are completely biased. They are the ones who decide if your tone or whatever it is they find offensive is a violation of this ridiculous policy. Secondly the app itself as well as the interface is terrible. It’s not user friendly, confusing and makes looking at or for the very content you were just given a notification for difficult. The concept is great and hopefully another developer creates a better and fairer program that actually allows free speech. I believe it’s because of these issues Quora hasn’t become a big success.
When I try to submit a question as part of the Partner program, the flow keeps getting stuck. After I select the people to request answers from, it takes me back to the page where I select the topics. It keeps going on in a loop where I’m not sure if the question is submitted yet. But when I try to submit the question again on the mobile website, it seems like my question was already posted. Very confusing! I also don’t like how it’s unclear on the mobile web or app where to explain my question in more detail. The part below the question field only suggests putting a link there. Once I start writing a question, the list of similar questions blocks the field to submit an explanation on mobile web and mobile app. It’s unclear how to earn any substantial amount of money from participating in the Partner Program. Each question posted seems to only generate a few cents or nothing at all. Quora also doesn’t proactively educate partners on how to increase earnings or how to receive payments.
At first I thought, very cool! But after a few weeks I found what appeared to be typical Q&A with interesting problems and solutions ranging from WRONG to BRILLIANT. But now, a new thing has gotten me so frustrated, I may have to give up Q altogether. “The ten things billionaires won’t tell you.” I assure you billionaires are not keeping anything from us and, if one has a secret, it’s not the same secret as another billionaire. The problem, though, is this pops up so frequently and the answer to the posed question so inane, it’s enough to ruin the Q experience. One more: how does the article about ways to make easy money come up over and over. Have no doubt, the author is getting paid for every successful referral. And how can these sites give away money? Their tracking info is worth far more than their giveaway. Is that not obvious. What isn’t obvious why these things come up do often unless, haha, maybe Quora is the author. That would explain both why they are so frequent and why they are mixed up in totally interesting puzzles in thermodynamics or questions in complex topology.
While I prefer reddit and the app (Apollo), I tend to google things and stumble on Quora once in a while. The mobile site is great. However I wanted to expand a comment and was forced to download the app to read the last two sentences. I would only use this app once or twice a month and hate taking up space just to read a comment. As with Yelp and Pinterest this forced app integration is annoying. I google something click a link read it and move on. Instead I google something click Quora, read half, force to download app, sign in, go back to google, click link , open in Quora, finish , delete app. Something that should have been so simple turned out to be painful and complicated and *80% of the time I just go to another source. I choose to use reddit browser or app I’m not forced to. The app itself is not bad. It’s just the premise behind it!
It’s pertinent for for us to be happy in our marriage or relationship and for us to get this we need to know what our partner are doing in their private life. This is not because of anything but because of our future and our mental health.

For any hacking related services most especially on infidelity and cheating I will suggest you contact this man to help you hack your spouse cell phone remotely. Contacts him via email: Adriancyberghost @ gmailcom or text, call & WhatsApp on +1,8,5,7,3,4,25,7,2,3 he is always available online and always ready to help.
Variety of topics and levels of interaction for everyone
I love this app because it has multitudes of topics so anyone can find a large variety of things to learn about. I am extremely curious, especially when it comes to people’s views on things. I love to see the variety of experiences and facts that influence people to hold specific opinions. This helps me see many viewpoints and ways of perceiving topics I’m interested in. I have on several occasions even changed my mind when I’ve been presented facts in a new way (and/or) whenI was given an anecdotal story that made me reconsider views I had held prior to hearing that person’s specific experience! I love the variety of answers from short to long, overviews to in depth analyses, from scientific answers to more personal or emotional answers, and just how differently a question can be perceived piques my curiosity! I love this app!!!
I have had an account on Quora for years. I responded to a post and was flagged because the a moderator didn’t like my name, even thought it’s been the same on there for years. So, I tried to delete my account, but was forced to install the app to do it. Then, it wanted the password I used when I signed up, but I used Google sign-in, so I didn’t have one. It said I needed to create a password and sent me a link. When I got the link, it said it was expired and sent me back to the app. I tried to request it again, but was then notified that I already requested a password reset and wasn’t allowed another one. I had to log in again via Google sign-in to deactivate my account. Only after that was I allowed to request account deletion. Also, I received 502 site errors repeatedly during this whole cumbersome process. I already wasn’t using the app, because I found the features buggy and lacking. Then I’m forced to install it again to leave? Ridiculous. Keep the account. If you don’t like my name, you don’t need me in your community. Period.
This app makes the website totally unusable. You are forced to download it, even if you do have an account and are logged in on the website, because there are pop ups that you cannot close that will only allow you to close the tab or download the app. I suppose it’s for the best anyway, this entire platform is a giant echo chamber/hugbox built for the #resistance conspiracy cat ladies and “Russian collusion” fan fiction writers of the world, who will fiercely downvote your post to oblivion lest you contribute anything resembling factual, cited information and burst their self-congratulatory bubble. If you are looking for a place to have your questions answered by self-appointed “experts” and other such dregs of the bottom 1/5th of the IQ range, where the idea of quality contributions are the same copy-pasted generic prattle or pseudo-intellectual bombastic answers from respondents attempting to appear like wisened, respected academics and *not* the unimpressive, 45+ year-old part-time retail managers living in their parents’ homes posing as “experts”, this is the place for you! If not, avoid at all costs.
