Say Goodbye Quora – Charles Snyder Raw #118. Since I’m seeing between 15 and 20 answers deleted on Quora this past week, I’m done with them. I have contacted them to get an explanation as to why those posts were deleted and they have yet to respond. So I’m not wasting any more time on that platform, because my first priority is running my agency.
My reasons are becoming legion, but here is some background information. Within the past 18 months, I have noticed a progressively draconian leaning on Quora favoring socialism, fascism and lies. I have also witnessed a growing censorship of conservative and Christian viewpoints as well. That’s not even mentioning all of the anti-American, anti-gun, racist and woman-demeaning crap I’m seeing on there. You know, the bullshit they SHOULD be moderating!
So after a few days of thinking about the problem, I’ve decided that it simply isn’t worth our time and effort. Although we have recently obtained our 100th follower on Quora, the amount of traffic coming from there isn’t worth it. I posted over 300 answers on there so far, but within the past two weeks some of them are now disappearing.
But I’m also seeing now that we are not the only ones having trouble with Quora. As I was putting the finishing touches on this video, a variety of different people having the same problem appeared. So maybe there should be some comfort in knowing we’re not alone. Or maybe it’s sad that more than a few people are fed up with them?
We Have Better Things To Do
So yes we are leaving Quora! We have more than 2,000 followers in various channels on Facebook and more than 2,600 on LinkedIn. And we have another 400 or so between Google+, Instagram, Twitter as well as our YouTube channel gaining a few subscribers too. However we do encourage our Quora followers to keep sending us questions, jut not on that website.
What I’m saying is; it is what it is. We can still be friends and I will keep answering your questions from any other social media website.
