While the idea of having a service where people can ask questions and get responses (ala Yahoo Answers) is certainly not new at all, the way in which the questions are distributed and the types of responses you received is…and it works a treat.
Sensay is the next generation when it comes to crowd sourced assistance and the beaut thing about it is the level of anonymity it provides.
Users sign up online and provide the service with an idea of what levels of expertise they have through the selection of groups or adding of their own details, then confirm their account through a text message from the service.
When a question arises where the service can be used, a text starting with the word “Need” can then be sent to the services mobile number….linking that user with another that is capable of providing a great answer to appease the user that has been left scratching their head.
Once the question is answered sufficiently, feedback can be left to boost the credit of the assisting user.
Developers of the service are looking at the idea of revenue generation through professional users accessing the service and refer/buy integration to the website once the service takes off.
At the moment, the website is currently in a beta mode with a wait list on all signups. You can check out the website online now.
