A Mosio Killer - February 5, 2008

ChaCha is a "text for an answer" service similar to Mosio that I blogged about earlier. So far I've been unimpressed with the ChaCha results, and more interested in the Mosio answers.

Here's the skinny. ChaCha relies on paid "guides" to supply answers to whoever is texting them. The results are only sent to that individual texter and not the community at large. The "guide's" answers are not judged by the rest of the users, which means that the answers are only as good as the person sending them. Mosio is much better because it's people powered, and other users have the opportunity to correct or refine answers given by others. Needless to say, it's good to have two sources to answer your text questions.

Just found this and LOL! I love how its title "Mosio Killer" but you talk about how Mosio is actually better.

Community is key, it adds personality, social context, etc. I agree with you on all fronts.
