One of the great things about the Yahoo! Answers community is that millions of users around the world take pride in helping each other by answering questions based on their firsthand knowledge and experience.
We’ve heard directly from many of you that you spend time actively looking for questions that match your interests, just so that you can share your expertise.
Today we’ve made that possible with our Question Recommender. You’ll see a new module on the Yahoo! Answers homepage that finds topics of relevance to you: the Question Recommender. It will consider your answering history and will generate personalized recommendations.
Here’s How it Works
The Question Recommender will present a set of 20 questions tailored for you. If you come across a question that’s a mismatch, of course you can reject it by hovering over a question in the Recommended Tab and then clicking the “X” button. Rejected questions will not appear again in the list. A new set of recommended questions can be generated with the refresh button at the bottom of the module.
The Question Recommender is currently available on our English language sites. We plan to extend this feature to other languages in the future, in addition to testing additional new features in an effort to make Yahoo! Answers the best possible experience for you.
We hope you find the Question Recommender a useful tool to find and answer more questions in less time.
Happy knowledge sharing!
