CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AskEachOther.com offers a free platform where users can get and give social advice by posting and voting on questions about virtually anything from Pop Culture to Relationships, Tech, Sports, People and more. In a time where the internet seems over-run with Q&A sites, VP of Operations, Rick Hinojosa says "What makes us different from other sites like Quora and FormSpring is that we're an everyday site for everybody, not just insiders, smart people or existing social friends. We're sort of like Yahoo Answers with voting." And it's that element of easy and instantaneous voting that has quickly driven AskEachOther.com to the Top 1000 of websites per Quancast with over 1.7M+ users in the US alone.
And, AskEachOther is no newbie to polling online either. The site has actually been around for over 3 years, but under a variety of different names, which have all led to significant improvements that have brought the current business model to where it is today.
The site features a media-driven, open format with a gallery of poll-like questions starting right on the homepage, most of which contain pictures, video and blurbs explaining why they were posted and referencing the original source(s).
In the beginning AskEachOther was based more around comments, but as it grew in popularity it quickly evolved into a two-option voting format, then its current existing multi-option format.
"Users were writing us and basically saying they loved the site, but it just took too much time and effort to sit there reading all the comments, responses and answers. So we decided to make something much easier and quicker for the common, everyday, on-the-move person." – says Founder, Ken Davis
In addition to being the world's #1 social advice site, AEO has also established quite a following of readers for their Blog sections (Tech, Dating and Sports) and openly welcomes guest bloggers offering more exposure and even encouraging self-promotion and "shameless" plugging. And if that wasn't enough they also recently just launched a Free Ads promotion where registered members can sign up to receive up to 100,000 free ad impressions to promote their own blog, website, business or service.

The site also features Sponsored Polls, a Poll Widget where you can make your own surveys, branded AEO Pages for companies and businesses and a planned AEO Stats Portal where enterprise clients can log in to a back-end to see various Voter statistics and analysis pertaining to their brand and consumer engagement. In addition, AEO has already accumulated more than 11,500+ Twitter followers (see http://twitter.com/AskEachOtherVIP) and another 20,000+ followers on their various AEO staff Twitter accounts, plus 7500+ Facebook "Likes" (see http://www.facebook.com/AskEachOther).
"It's so exciting to see the site fill up with content - it's basically turning into a huge repository, sort of like a "Wikipedia" of polls." Says VP of Content Strategy, Mark Davis who is also the brother to the founder and oversees the online environment and content for the site.
