What do Bono, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Seann William Scott all have in common? They have all taken part in Answers over the last couple of years. And they have not been the only ones-there’s a long list of celebrities and notable leaders who have chosen to pose a question to the Answers community and eagerly review your responses.
However, many of you have expressed feelings of concern toward the authenticity of these public figures on Answers. Well, we’d like to set the record straight: of course they are who they say they are. You’ll recognize them by the green badge with the “official” label under their avatar.
It’s that simple. You know us-we are always talking about our community guidelines, terms of service, and copyright and intellectual property policies. We take this all very seriously and would never allow someone to impersonate a public figure.
Here’s how the process works: The celebrity asks the question (you can see many recorded on video), the community answers the question, and the celebrity chooses the Best Answer.
Some of the questions and features come from our international Answers teams and have to be translated or converted into American English, but that’s it. There’s no trick or behind-the-scenes manipulations-they are who they say they are! And…they are amazed at the passion of the Answers community!
Now that you know these people are the “real McCoy,” is there someone in particular you’d like to see put a question before the community? We don’t promise anything, but we’d love to hear your suggestions, and we’ll do our best to make your dream come true.
