As Quora Thinks More About Mobile, They Drop A Pin On Location
Some of the most interesting and relevant content on Quora are related to places. But up until now, Quora hasn't done much to focus that data using location. Today, they're starting to. A new feature going live shortly will allow users to set location information for topics. For example, if there's a topic about the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, you can now drop a pin to indicate where that is on a map. This location will then show up to everyone browsing that topic. And the map can be set to show the satellite or terrain view as well (they're using Google Maps). Specific addresses can also be entered.
