Blind leading the blind [1]I’ve never used Yahoo! Answers but, then again, there’s a lot I don’t know. Yahoo! Answers Network is trying to make the answers we get “smarter.” The Yahoo! Search blog [2] explains:

“But even with all that knowledge being shared, one of the biggest pieces of feedback we’ve gotten from our users is to make Answers “smarter”, enabling them to get even better answers to their questions and connect to the smart people they know in (and out of) Answers. Well today, we think Yahoo! Answers just got a little bit smarter.

We just added a new capability to Answers, the Yahoo! Answers Network – currently in beta, which enables you to build your own personal knowledge network. So what exactly is a knowledge network? Simply put, it enables you to directly connect with people whose knowledge you value so you can easily share knowledge and discover interesting information on topics you care about.

More specifically, the Yahoo! Answers Network enables you to see if any of your contacts have asked a question, provided a great answer, or simply “starred” a question they found interesting.”

What do you think of Yahoo! Answers? Have you tried it, liked it, use it regularly?
