Troy-based Integration platform Socialgist announced a strategic partnership with Quora, enabling privacy-safe business insights from its expert audience for the first time ever via application programming interface.
Quora, one of the leading knowledge sharing platforms, now will rely on Socialgist’s infrastructure and services to deliver data products surrounding the millions of public questions and answers that are shared on Quora. The partnership ensures important insights are available to enterprise-level clients who seek to more thoroughly understand and engage with Quora’s community.
“Access to high-quality content is a priority for our clients and is why connecting with Quora has been at the top of their wish list for some time,” says Jon Oelman, COO of Socialgist. “Now our customers will be able to tap into this excellent source of knowledge and uncover valuable insights around the topics they care most about.”
Founded in 2009, Quora has a large, engaged audience with more than 300 million monthly visitors to the site. Additionally, millions of questions and answers are added to Quora every month. Prior to this partnership, Quora’s data was not available in any form for third-party use, even though various companies have been interested in this data.
“The partnership with Socialgist furthers Quora’s mission of sharing and growing the world’s knowledge by enabling more people to access the knowledge on Quora and bring more awareness of Quora as the leading platform for sharing knowledge globally,” says Brendan Weitz, head of product partnerships at Quora. “This is the first time we’ve opened up access and we’re excited to fulfill the demand from the marketing, research, finance, and analytics industries. This is a big milestone for Quora.”
With millions of new answers added per week, these new enterprise-level offerings provide high level, real-time insights across verticals, like: B2B, Tech, SaaS, Finance, Education, Job, and Careers.
