How is it that Anoox is the only non-profit Search engine & Social Network?
Because Anoox is that rarest of Internet companies that puts People over Profits (POP). So it took us 10+ Years and Tons of sweat equity Capital by volunteers from around the World to develop this network for the benefit of People & Small Businesses on Main Street rather than for profits and share prices on Wall Street
What does it mean that Anoox search engine is People Powered?
Anoox search engine first Machine Indexes the listings, results are then Democratically ranked based on Crowd Wisdom
. This means
based on what the Collective
, based on what YOU
So Anoox puts the Power
of something as important as the Search engine, the Gateway
to what People think, what People buy,
who People vote for, etc. etc.; in the hand of the We the People
, via our robust Social Network that is Free to Join.
How do we as Anoox members get the best Answers out? Get the Truth out?
There are many parts to our Collective effort
to get the best Answers out, to get the Truth out, based on Crowd Wisdom
. They are composed of:
- Anoox People Powered Search engine, where the search results are driven by Crowd Wisdom. Because for most people the 1st place they go to get the answer to their questions is the search engine. So you can say that search engine is THE GATEWAY to what People know and buy, etc..
- Anoox Social Network conversations, where you can discuss your questions and Today's issues with real people in free flowing conversations and arrive at the best answers via back and forth discussions and debates that are FREE of Big Corporate biases.
- Anoox Polls, because sometimes the only way to get the Best answers out, to get the Truth out, is via Numerically tallying the collective Crowd Wisdom, which means doing so via Polls. Moreover Polls allow you to embed your questions and resulting answers into your Site.
Do I have to help with getting the best Answers out, or can I just share what I post with friends family and colleagues?
No, you do not have to help with getting the best Answers out. You can use your Anoox Social network account for posting and discussing what you want only
with friends, family and colleague. So if you want to meet new People and get more Free Traffic then you want to step into the Public side of your
Anoox Social network account and discuss Today's issues or answer member questions about subjects you are expert in. OTOH, if you just want to use
your Anoox Social network account to share your ideas, photos, videos, polls, etc. within your World that is just fine too.
What happens after someone Friends me?
After someone Friends you, then you will be informed of all their Anoox Social activities, such as Questions they post, Discussions they start, Videos they post, etc. and vis-versa they will informed of all your Social activities. So the more people that you Friend, the greater will be your (free) network effect.
Best way to make new Friends is to post answers to questions you are passionate or knowledgeable about and meet people similarly interested about same issues.
DO NOT SPAM. Only Friend People who you have genuine shared interest with. Otherwise, if you Friend people just to increase your Free network effect, you will be rejected by people you have asked to Friend, and if you are rejected by too many people you be will flagged as SPAMMer and rejected from the network.
What is the difference between 'Friend me' and 'Follow me'?
When you Follow someone, then you will be informed of all their Anoox Social activities, such as Questions they post, Discussions they start, Polls they create, etc. but they will not be informed of your Social activities. So whereas Friend-ing someone is a bi-directional connection, Following someone is a uni-directional connection. Note:
- Whereas Friend-ing someone requires sending them a message to Accept your invite to Friend each other. Following someone does not require sending a message and takes place instantly upon clicking the "Follow Me" button for them.
- Both the person that you are Following and you can always Reject/Cancel the connection from the related pages from your My Anoox dashboard.
