, a social media website where people can share relevant information and opinions, and create free Communities on any topic, is introducing a new format to share and discover knowledge, called Questions on Lunch. The feature expands on Lunch’s existing feature-rich platform of contribution tools, which offers a range of useful ways to easily share information on any topic. The question and answer approach gives people searching for content a quick and easy way to access knowledge from experts and enthusiasts who are eager to share tips and information related to their personal passions. Likewise, those seeking to contribute helpful content on their areas of interest now have a new way to connect with a relevant audience. Questions can be asked and answered on any topic, from the new movie The Social Network to home-remedies for hangovers.
Lunch’s proprietary Similarity Network makes the question and answer format exponentially more valuable by adding a much-needed layer of relevance. Any member of the site is able to see how relevant each answer is, based on their similarity score with the contributing member. This helps to cut through the noise and clutter of content online, to zero in on what’s most personally relevant. Questions on Lunch have also been designed to ensure that valuable content is easy to search and find, by linking all questions to an organized topic structure. Members are also able to follow a Question.
“We’ve always been really focused on engaging more quality participation online, and encouraging more people to share their thoughts,” said J.R. Johnson, founder and chief executive officer. “The Questions feature directly supports that mission.” In addition to Questions, people can share their opinions by rating topics, creating lists, polls, and discussions, posting Quick Tips, and writing full-length reviews. With so many avenues for contribution, members are free to choose whichever one best fits their personal style and the nature of the opinion they’re expressing. Everyone from prolific, expert reviewers to those brand new to sharing content online has a relevant way to voice their views at Lunch. About Lunch
