I wondered this because you can’t be anonymous like you can on Reddit. At the sake of embarrassment though, you can get a direct answer from a professional. This saves time from having to weed through articles and answers on Google certainly.
Quora may not be as bountiful as Google, but it’s much more industry specific. A number of people I admire have accounts and consistently answer questions, i.e. Seth Godin, James Altucher… If you are a writer needing to build a fictional character’s credentials or background story, Quora connects you to the person with specific knowledge.
