Remember Facebook Questions? Well, Facebook hopes you probably have forgotten already, as it appears to have phased out the Q&A component to their site.
Q&A naturally made sense for the social network, as interactions within the news feed quickly had the ability to reach incredible-sized audiences with every interaction.
The press was quick to position Facebook Questions as a potential Yahoo Answers-killer and direct Formspring competitor. Quora was never really threatened as the feature tended to focus on polling and opinion rather than authoritative answers.
Facebook Questions certainly didn’t seem to hurt the company — I recall seeing a few of these posts in my timeline from time-to-time. But it’s possible that Facebook didn’t want to put any more time into developing what could have been a game-changing feature that wasn’t going anywhere fast.
