Does Yahoo have the answer?

The latest entrant onto the social networking playing field is Yahoo! Answers, a free service that allows community members to ask questions of each other, with consumer-generated answers.

Pretty interesting stuff. Content is purely based on consumer-generated content, but it will be very interesting to match the relevancy of a Google with the relevancy of answers by humans in real-time who presumably know their stuff.

Will this replace search engines? Hardly. But if I happen to ask where I can find the best cupcakes in Seattle, and get another Seattleite to post an answer, that's very credible information.

See what others have already written about Yahoo! Answers here, here, here and here.
