Have you ever wondered how important it is to ask the right question? A good question can help you gain the knowledge you need or connect with interesting people and even make friends. This is the goal of the ASKfm social network: it connects people through their questions. Sounds simple right?
By sending a question to many people around him, the user hopes to get different opinions, meet or find the answer to a question that is not found on Wikipedia.
Previously, the shout (massive question) was sent to a group of random users around the author.
Now AI takes into account the size of the country in which the message is sent, analyzes the time of day and the number of questions that the people around the author are sending at the moment.
“We want to make user communication more interesting and connect those who have common communication themes. It is always valuable to get advice or opinions from a person who understands the subject. This is what we want to achieve by sending a question not to random people, but to those who are most likely to answer it! “- Tomas Jundo, Product Manager @ASKfm
A smart engine offers only the questions that are interesting to users. Also, questions are mostly sent to users who are online at the moment to provide the fastest answers.
The first results of the test showed the growth of the participation of the users in different locations from 20 to 50% and they continue to grow in parallel with the training of the AI and its improvement.
