President Obama Answers Questions About Healthcare Law on Quora, Giving the Growing Q&A Site a Boost


If his Reddit AMA was any indicator, Quora’s first verified public figure should certainly improve the credibility of the quietly growing topic-driven Q&A platform.

President Barack Obama is joining Quora this morning to answer questions about the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. March 31 is the last day to sign up for a healthcare plan without incurring a fine.

Unlike President Obama’s Reddit AMA, his Quora Q&A won’t be live. Obama plans to use Quora like any other user—answering existing questions that relate to healthcare, a popular topic on the site, while Quora aggregates his answers on his profile for all users to see, which are also tagged across the site under the existing topics.

Verified profiles on Quora will look similar to Facebook and Twitter. They will have a blue verified checkmark on the user’s profile, and Quora will choose public figures— including celebrities, government officials and industry leaders—based on a variety of indicators that the site has not made public. Actor Ashton Kutcher, NBA player Jeremy Lin, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg are just a few pubic figures who will also have verified profiles on Quora.
