Masmic vs Quora: What does Masmic lack?

0 0
Quora is in eternal September mode. They have a huge influx of new users every day, so there are many, many questions being asked. Most of the time those questions are repetitive. They have mechanisms for requesting answers to specific questions and good user profiles. Also, the daily digest I get has interseting answers. They often are a bit silly and entertaining.

Their monetization strategy for users is also the opposite of Masmic's. They reward questions not answers.

Overall I hate the quora experience, the website is crowded and hard to use, the mobile version of their site frequently prompts me to install the app and actually prevents me from going any further because I can't close the prompt. However, it has a massive wealth of existing questions and answers and a huge userbase. I get to interact with people I actually really admire (C.S. Friedman wrote one of my favourite trilogies of all time, I ended up interacting with her on Quora at one point. Orson Scott Card is on there... and seems like a reasonably nice fellow if you ignore the hypocrisy, religious fervour, and blatant homophobia).

Masmic also has a challenging name from a marketing perspective. For whatever reason Quora just rolls of the tongue easier.

3.easy withdrawal for non-crypto aware people.
4.Can not change my username.
5.Lots of already asked questions that will be gained over period of time.

This is a minor problem that can be solved easily through promotion and publicity by referral programs.However I would say that masmic, could add a feature Quora uses. The option of asking or answering a questionĀ 
anonymously would be great.

People use Quora?

Honestly though, I don't think you are lacking anything except users. I used to write answers to questions on Yahoo for free just for the fun of it in my free time and getting a little xlm is more satisfying than upvotes. However, it does make the ask of what it is lacking more difficult, you can't know what direction to take something you have created, without knowing how people are going to use it.

So, sadly, that means my answer has to be logo and branding.

I believe that every new day people prefer Masmic over Quora because Masmic is more useful.

They have a larger platform currently and is free but, it seems that Masmic just lacks time, as with time will bring in the new people and build it up to something that will be very impressive down the road, not that it isn't already.

Here are a few things which Masmic lack:

1) Popularity
2) User base
3) Spam answers :P
4) Hype

Lets hope the next bull run will also bring a bull run in the user base of Masmic :P

Masmic lacks popularity as it is not widely known. This is a minor problem that can be solved easily through promotion and publicity by referral programs. With a little time I am sure it will have a lot of users

The people and the userbase. Masmic should also get their SEO up on Google to help get more discovery. I also trust answers more on quora because of this.
