Facebook launched its new “Facebook Questions” service today. This feature allows users to ask a question and anyone in the Facebook community can take a crack at answering it.
A new “Ask Question” button on a users profile is provided where questions are posed and are visible to all of that person’s friends, as well as the entire Facebook community. Users also have the option to add a photo or poll to the question, making it easy to get an opinion. Questions posed can also be tagged as a specific topic, and then will be shown to Facebook users who have expressed an interest in that topic.
Opening the questions up to be answered by the entire Facebook community allows users to get a little more out of the service.
The Questions Service is currently only available to a small number of Facebook users with plans to roll the service out to the rest of Facebook as quickly as possible.
