Why ask questions thru formspring when you can use Twitter or FB? Btw, I love formspring… just asking.

I think what we are learning from the rise of social Q&A sites like Formspring is that this is a distinct category of social behavior. Just like Foursquare shows us that the "checkin" is its own vertical category. And part of what it means to be a distinct vertical is that people prefer a distinct experience or channel for this activity. I expect over time we will see other examples of social verticals. And, having missed Foursquare but gotten into Formspring, I hope to back some more of them!
