Salons - Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Quora Salon?
Salons are a new feature that allows you to curate collections and build communities with common interests and preferences. There are no limits to creativity and salons can be used in a wide variety of ways. Here are just a few examples:

  • A group of people can curate a collection of the most interesting Quora answers and external links on a particular area of ​​interest.
  • An individual can use salons to organize their own information from various areas of knowledge and thus create their own column.
  • An entire community can create a salon to exchange ideas on a specific topic.

How are salons different from blogs?
Salons are better for posting, and provide support for shared content, links, and short posts. We have learned a lot from our blogging experience and believe that knowledge sharing works best in groups, large or small. Therefore, we would like to optimally support this application. For example, in a salon it can be specified that comments can be made either by all users or only by their own contributors. We will continue to expand the range of functions over time.
