At ASKfm, our premise is simple: we believe questions and answers are the building blocks of conversation, self-expression and deeper understanding. As the only global social network built on a Q&A format, we are a bit different from other services you might use. How you engage with friends and express yourself on ASKfm is done through the lens of what your social connections are curious to learn about you. There is no need for forced status updates on ASKfm; instead, what the world wants to know about your thoughts and feelings defines what you share on the service. Through the natural exchange of questions and answers, ASKfm aims to be a safe, fun and engaging place for learning more about yourself and exploring the social world around you.
