- According to the Web tracking company Hitwise, Yahoo! Answers is the second-most-visited education/reference site on the Internet after Wikipedia.
- It encourages bad research habits, rewards people who post things that aren’t true, and frequently labels factual errors as correct information.
- The thrill of Yahoo! Answers comes in the instant interaction: the scores of questions, the immediate back-and-forth discussions, the opportunity to feel like an expert, and, eventually, the promise a query will be labeled a « Resolved Question » no matter how difficult.
