    Mashable had an interesting piece suggesting that small business owners should take advantage of this fairly new Facebook feature.

    Please share your thoughts on this.

    It looks great Kay, thanks for sharing it with us. Do you know how I can enable questions on my profile?

    I've never noticed this on my profile.

    I guess it can be potentially helpful, assuming you have a good target audience on FaceBook. You'd also need to have informative questions that can be answered positively, like "Yea, I would like that."

    Thanks for this valuable piece of advice Kay.

    Just to remind everyone Facebook is either the 1st/2nd most used webpage on the entire net before/after Google, so correct usage of this is very potent.

    From the success of Yahoo and wiki Answers, there's now Facebook Questions! Great job Facebook.
    Ok, back to topic, I haven't really tried it so I can't really comments on this new service given by Facebook.
    And honestly, I haven't really knew it existed. :p

    Apparently it's being rolled out and not everyone can see it yet, Fergal. I can't see it on mine either.

    I checked the Help Center to see what's the latest.

    You'll need to log in to your Facebook account see the beta tester application link. All that's needed is to provide a sample question and answer of your choosing to show "you can write clearly and authoritatively on familiar subject matter." Hope that helps.

    Thanks Kay, I've submitted an application. For the question and answer I sent them a link to my BAF profile, not sure if that will cut it, but we will see.
