Ajwibah.com



A new website is live now on Cyber space! (Yeah, I know, it happens a lot!).

But still, it is sometimes fun to point to one or two interesting websites (like I do on my TechFountains Blog).

This website is called Ajwibah.com ("Ajwibah" is Arabic for "Answers").

As you might have guessed, this is a new Question / Answer website in Arabic.

It is not the first of its kind, yet, the creators of this website aim to make it the number one destination for Arab users whenever they need a Question / Answer website.

In other words, they want to become the Arabic Yahoo Answers.

The site itself is simple to use, does not require a lot of information to register, or use.

It offers the ability to post / share your questions on major social media websites like Facebook and Twitter.

You can add as much explanation as you want for your question or answer.

It also has a points system, where users earn points for their activities on the website.

The owners of the website say that they will keep working on to add more features to the website.

Well, we wish them luck.
Hope they become the next big thing in the middle eastern start up space.

Here is a link to the website:
