Q&A platforms are in and popping up all over the place. Weblogs SL, by far the leading Spanish blog network, has rolled out its own Q&A system, Respuestas, along the lines of Mahalo or perhaps Quora. Weblogs SL was launched in 2004 by co-founders Julio Alonso and Antonio Ortiz, and today boasts 38 vertical blogs and 15 million unique users.
Although Weblogs SL is known for its highly specialized publications, the network continues to embrace more of a community aspect through the integration of a Q&A platform rather than relying purely on one way editorial and reporting.
The Q&A feature follows previously implemented user pages, an expert/follower system, user karma, Facebook integration, and product pages. The idea is to make Weblogs SL content more social, and then capitalize on it by packaging it up for brands, who can in turn join the conversation.
