It’s a milestone that should be celebrated: In June, we hit 300,000,000 questions asked on Yahoo! Answers! And for those of you, who cannot wrap their heads around all those zeros, we’re happy to repeat in words: Globally, 300 million times people have been asking for help, advice, and facts on our amazing questions and answers portal.
And our statistics reveal further interesting numbers:
On average, 2 questions are being asked and 6 answered per second. So this means there’s an astonishing 7,000 questions and an incredible 21,000 answers per hour. Wow!
The question that has been answered the most globally is the following one from the US: Which question would you like to ask the President of the United States Barack Obama? The question received a stunning 41,130 answers!
