"Answer sites might just be the perfect marriage of social media and search."
The basic concept behind an answer site is that people can post a question hoping to get it answered by someone knowledgeable in the subject matter. The answers can be powered by public knowledge with consensus determining the “best” answer. Answer sites offer users the ability to be both the inquisitor and the expert.
Generally, in human — shall we say, analog — interaction, we can answer each others questions based on our personal experiences. Answer sites make it possible to do this on a massive scale. This often means that the turnaround for a question is relatively fast; many questions get answers in less than a day. In fact, most questions have already been asked and answered, so getting an answer to common questions can be almost instant.
