How to Get Started on Quora

A friend of mine who owns a small business recently asked, “I was so proud when I figured out how to interact with people on Twitter and Facebook. Now am I supposed to be doing something on Quora?” We discussed her goals and how she felt about spending some time at “the place people go when they want to find answers.” Of course, that brings up the fear of how easily time can disappear when you fly into the vortex of social networking sites.
