Currently, two major question and answer platforms are Reddit and Quora. While both have a wide user base, they have their own layout and style to help the users.

I am an avid user of these two websites Quora and Reddit. I find it really amazing to work on these two websites as I ask questions and find answers. I find it not much reliable now. Now that the traffic on these two website have been increasing drastically many questions answered on the website is highly not acceptable. I usually search for my  questions on many websites to confirm the response given to my questions. This is a very nice website too. I use it very often and I love searching here too because the pictures illustrates the points pretty well. 


I think Quora is a more sophisticated and substantial platform. 

Yes Quora is best
