Personal Experiences and Advice Shared Through Dynamic WikiAnswers Q&A
NEW YORK, October 22 /PRNewswire/ -- In a show of support for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Answers.com's question and answer community, WikiAnswers(TM), is spotlighting its section on Breast Cancer (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/FAQ/2375), where breast cancer survivors, friends and family have gathered to ask questions and share their personal experiences and advice.
"It's comforting to know that WikiAnswers offers a pressure-free community where those touched by this disease can ask questions and receive a personal response, rather than reading prewritten FAQs. It's the human element that makes all the difference," commented Crystal Williams, Community Coordinator for WikiAnswers. "Our volunteer Supervisors diligently organize and edit material to make this endeavor possible."
Answers.com's WikiAnswers is a wiki
(http://www.answers.com/topic/wiki?cat=technology) -based website that is
constantly improving, through the efforts of its dedicated question and
answer community. It is the user generated content (UGC) component of
Answers.com, where visitors share what they know and ask about what they
don't. Wiki Q&As are 'living' documents, where answers are constantly being
improved and updated over time. This ensures that no identical answer is
developed in parallel, and that good answers can become great answers over
time. A single Q&A, in this case those focusing on the important issue of
breast cancer, can help thousands of people. Take for example: "What are
the best treatment options for breast cancer?" With new medical
developments happening at any given moment, a static FAQ can become
outdated quickly, while a wiki Q&A can be changed as soon as new treatments
are announced - in
