Yahoo! Answers Adds Personal Networking

Yahoo! Answers (, a Q&A site on the Web, has introduced "knowledge networking," an easy way for people to connect to others online and to build a personal network of people to exchange knowledge with on specific areas of interest. The new Yahoo! Answers Network is currently in beta.

Users can add other Yahoo! Answers users or invite friends outside of Yahoo! Answers via email to join their personal knowledge network. Once Yahoo! Answers users have added someone to their personal knowledge network, they can see if any of their contacts have asked a question, provided a great answer, or "starred" a question they found interesting for a personalized dashboard of all the topics and people important to them.

Yahoo! said it is working to increase the capability of choosing who users are sharing Q&A with in a personal network—including being able to block and ignore users and having greater control over the visibility of contacts and fans. In addition, it is also looking into adding the ability to import contacts from places such as Yahoo! Messenger.
