awesome questions and discussions feature to be launched next month

I wanted to provide an advance announcement, of a new feature that we are adding to the platform. This new feature will provide you the ability to enhance your personal and corporate profile by responding to questions that are raised from the community. In order to get maximum value and to improve your ranking, please answer questions as accurately as you can, and refrain from directly pushing your product or service offerings in the answers.

The new feature allows:

. You to initiate an open question or start a discussion from your user profile page.

. Users to raise a question or start a discussion from your company or solution pages.

Questions asked by a given user will be displayed to all the users that have voted for you, your company, or your solutions offerings. The questions will also be distributed to your network and connections on the various social media channels that you are a member, if you so desire by selecting the option on the question page.

This feature will allow a more free flowing discussion and interaction between you and your network, and thereby increase the chances of people outside your network hearing of your company and its solution offerings. This new feature will be launched the second week of February. Obviously to get maximum exposure through this, you would have to complete your company, products and services pages on the platform.

As usual I would very much like to hear from you about any new features or improvements to the platform that will make it a more useful tool for you. Please feel free to drop me a note and I will respond promptly.
