The content on this page is forked from the English Wikipedia page entitled "Timeline of Quora". The original page still exists at Timeline of Quora. The original content was released under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License (CC-BY-SA), so this page inherits this license. This page has been edited significantly on the Timelines Wiki after forking and may differ significantly from the current version on Wikipedia.

This is a timeline of Quora, a question-and-answer website where questions are asked, answered, and organized by its community of users.

Sample questions

The following are some interesting questions that can be answered by reading this timeline:

Big picture

Time period Development summary More details
2010–2011 " January of 2010 and January of 2011, Quora grew a whopping 37,000% in usership, giving the website around 160,000 users at the time."[1] Quora is reviewed extensively by the media in 2010.[2][3][4]
2012 "in 2012, Quora was valued at over $400 million."[1]
2013 "Quora reported 50 percent growth"[5] "Quora released a full-text search of questions and answers"[6] "In 2013, Quora launched a blogging feature, where anyone or writers can share their knowledge"[7]
2014 Quora joins startup accelerator Y Combinator.[8] After drawing an $80 million funding from Tiger Global, the company is valued at $900 million.[6] Quora starts attracting continued controversy for using robots.txt to instruct crawlers such as the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine to not index or archive the site.[9][10]
2015 "In 2015, Quora replaced the credit system with a new mechanic with “more” or “less” high authority for questions and answers in the news feed and expert appeals. This is a simpler system to understand, which automatically ranks all posts depending on several factors: the level of expertise of the author in the desired niche, user activity, the number of direct calls to the presenter or responder, and the like."[11]
2016 "The first ad that Quora had posted was from Uber in 2016"[6] "2016 Quora became a multilingual platform"[12] "Monetization on the site appeared only in 2016, when they introduced the opportunity to advertise goods and services of third-party resources. Since then, advertising has been the only way to monetize a project, except for the sale of personal data (which is not discussed openly, but everyone does it, especially if you have specific surnames with user names)."[11]
2017 Quora reaches 200 million unique visitors every month.[13] "Quora was valued at $1.8 billion following a funding round that raised $85 million"[14] Quora World Meetup starts.[15]
2018 Quora reaches 300 million unique visitors every month.[13][16] The company introduces a program that offers incentives to users that ask questions.
2019 "But Silicon Valley now considers Quora — something of a relic of a quainter era on the internet — a $2 billion company, Recode has learned."[17]
