Quora is yet another social network, positioning itself somewhere between Facebook and Twitter and possibly Wikipedia. The site describes itself as being “A continually improving collection of questions and answers created, edited, and organized by everyone who uses it.” In short users login and pose questions which are then answered by others who profess to have inside information.

Facebook co-founder, Dustin Moskovitz and AOL co-founder Steve Case are said to be among the contributors. Like Twitter, you can follow people or trends or questions. And what might people be asking on Quora? Here is a sample: “I’m looking to hire an awesome developer for my startup website which is a startup Travel Social Network. What kind of questions should I ask in the interview?” “Assuming I had to develop a web app, what kind of programming languages should I learn?
