Yahoo releases beta of Yahoo Answers.

Yahoo recently released the beta of it’s new Answers service site. This is a free service based on the Usenet concept of posting a question and receiving answers by other people. According Yahoo Answers help page:

Yahoo! Answers offers an easy way to share facts, opinions, and personal experiences on any topic, from the serious to the irresistibly trivial. Get real answers from real people in an easy-to-use, privacy-protected, and spam-protected environment.

The service is extensively covered here.

Why Yahoo Answers is like Usenet and which are the differences? Well, of course some users of the beta service asked similar questions and received answers here and here.

I’ll try Yahoo Answers for a while and then I’ll report my impressions.
