Quora

Quora was founded in April 2009 by Adam D’Angelo, who was previously CTO and VP of engineering at Facebook, and Charlie Cheever, who led Facebook Connect and Facebook Platform. Quora is privately held and funded by Benchmark Capital, and is based in Palo Alto, CA.

It is a collection of questions and answers. You can add, created, edited, and organized questions and answers. You can also categorize questions by adding topics to them, summarize answers on a question page, and edit any question or summary. Duplicate questions and topics are unified so that the content on the site keeps getting better instead of getting fragmented. Users can follow questions, topics and people, which create a stream of relevant questions and answers for each user. The site is closely monitored and maintained by its users so the quality of questions and answers stays high.

Founder and CEO Adam D’Angelo said:

“Our belief is that more than 90% of the information people want to know is still not available on the web in a format that’s easy for them to quickly understand,”

“People really want to share their knowledge with others, and we’re building a system for everyone to do that much more easily and efficiently than they have ever been able to.”

So if you want to have the invitation of Quora just make a comment below with the reason why you want this Invitation. And don’t forget to give your correct email ID at the place of Mail (your email ID will not be published) so I can send you invitation on that.
