Quora is a question-and-answer platform where Internet users ask questions, answer questions, and edit them, either in fact or in the form of opinions. Its founder, Quora Inc., is headquartered in Mountain View, California, USA. The company was founded in June 2009 and on June 21, 2010, the website was first made available to the public. Users will work together by editing questions and recommending the editing of responses that other users have submitted.
Quora was co-founded in June 2009 by former employees of Facebook, Adam D’Angelo, and Charlie Cheever. In response to the question “Why did Adam D’Angelo and Charlie Cheever come up with the name Quora?” written on Quora in 2011, Charlie Cheever said, “We spent a few hours brainstorming and writing down all the ideas we could think of. After speaking with friends and removing those we didn’t love, we narrowed it to 5 or 6 finalists and finally settled on Quora.”
