New Delhi: Q&A platform Quora announced today the launch of Quora in Hindi. Quora is now available in Hindi for anyone to ask questions, share their knowledge, and learn from others to better understand the world.
Quora’s mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge. Most of the knowledge in the world can’t be accessed online by the general public, which is why Quora is building a platform where people can share what they know across millions of topics.
Launched in English in 2010, the platform has grown to reach more than 200 million unique visitors per month from around the world. More than half the people who use Quora come from outside the United States, including many people from India.
Since its launch, Quora has attracted leading personalities and experts who have answered all kinds of questions asked by people on Quora, and shared knowledge that wasn’t available before.
Quora CEO Adam D’Angelo was the first Facebook Chief Technology Officer before he decided to leave the company to found Quora in 2009 and build his vision: a place where people could share their knowledge online and be in touch with those who need it.
In April, Quora launched a beta version in Hindi to a small group of people. In just a few months, the platform has grown with quality content provided by personalities from different sectors such doctors, development professionals, IAS officers, software developers, CEOs, writers, graphic designers, and teachers.
“Quora has been popular in India for many years, and now that we are opening Quora up in Hindi we hope to have even more participation from people in India. I’ve been excited to see the engagement throughout the beta of Quora in Hindi. The universal appeal of our mission combined with India’s diversity and large base of internet users makes the launch of Quora in Hindi an important step towards expanding access to knowledge,” said Gautam Shewakramani, India Country Manager at Quora.
On Quora, people can ask questions about any topic. Quora then distributes those questions to those who can provide high quality and useful answers, based on their relevant expertise and experiences. The more that a person uses Quora by writing answers, following topics, and following people, the more that Quora is able to personalize their experience on the platform.
