Quora for churches?
Do you understand the title of this post. Let me break it down for you. Quora is a site "where you browse around for questions you think you can answer, and/or you view interesting answers." This was a quote from Chris Borgan's site, not from Quora itself. I used that because gothreeestory.com post was prompted by the same post. That's a company/website name I was having a bit of hard time deciphering. Because of my interest on goth culture I kept trying to read it as goth-reestory, but that didn't make any sense. Next I tried to understand it as got-hreestory, but was even less sensible. I went to the site hoping to find an explanation. When I finally reached their about page I saw that the first two letters were of different color there, so now I understand: it is "Go Three Story." I still don't know the story behind the three story, but at least I see that it is a company "devoted to helping churches and non-profits produce fantastic media."
So what do they, i.e. Brian Notess, the creative director of the company, have to say on the topic of "Quora for churches"? He takes the fact that it needs a critical mass of users for any of this kind of services to be useful, and applies it to the organization: waits with specifics until Quora has proven worthy of lots of church users signing up. Notess noted though the features he liked.
- You can ask individuals questions (like a literal interview).
- You can get answers from experts (and celebrities)
- You can follow the progress of questions being answered.
- You can filter your feed based on location (although I initially turned this feature off and can’t figure out how to get it back on).
P.s. I have been on Quora for a few months, but didn't find it useful enough yet. Acknowledging that I didn't spend much time on it though
