Facebook did a soft release of their new "Facebook Questions" module...
With the success of Social Media sites built around Questions and Answers, such as Quora, FormSpring.me, ThreeWords.me, Quizy.me, Facebook now launched a new Facebook Questions functionality. It allows individual users as well as pages to ask questions.
What's interesting is your facebook friends as well as the subscribers to your business pages can vote on the question, answer it, and share it with their community; and that allows one to cast a much wider net using the new Facebook Questions function!
Facebook will roll-out "Questions" site-wide soon... For now, you can select to speed up that launch and start using it by going directly to the facebook app/function page. This is not a third party functionality --it's facebook's own.
Once you install the app, it puts it among your "share" choices/functions on your profile as well as the pages you administrate:
Once a question is asked, others can answer it, share it on their wall with their community, vote on it, or add additional multiple choice response options to the question that others can vote on:
While asking the question, you can also add survey-style multiple choices:
Facebook is surely going to create a lot of buzz around it's new questions functionality!
