Ha ChaCha!

Is Neil Diamond Jewish? How much does the FDIC actually insure you for? What was the name of the lead singer of the Bangles? Does a bear really, um, poop in the woods? Ok, maybe the last question doesn’t require any research or validation, but let’s face it, in today’s fast paced world, there are times when you have questions and you need answers. Let’s say, for example, you’re at a very important business dinner. Somehow the conversation gets to the topic of politics. Dreadful, I know. How old are the two candidates that are running for president this year?  Well you could guess, estimate, argue about it, or you could….ChaCha! No, I don’t mean dance!

Introducing ChaCha.com, your newest, smartest best friend, ChaCha is like having a smart friend you can call or send text messages to anytime, day or night. You either send a text message to 242242 (ChaCha) or call 800-2ChaCha (224-2242).  Send a text message with your question, or call and leave a message with your question, and you will receive a reply within minutes with the correct, researched, verified answer. It’s like having your own personal life line all the time!

Founded in 2006, and launched in January of 2008, ChaCha now employs over 35,000 “guides†who receive your questions and sit at their computers ready to research and fire back the answers to you. Ask them anything, and get the answer.  You will become the life of the party, or at least the most well informed.  According to Nielsen Mobile, ChaCha is the fastest growing mobile search company in the country.

With all of these people ready and willing to answer your questions, you may wonder just how many questions they answer; I sure did! Can you imagine that since January, they have answered over 28,000,000 questions and are now averaging more than 10,000,000 each month! Wow!

One of the coolest features of ChaCha is that all of your questions and answers stay in sync. You may send a text message from your car, (not while driving of course) or type another question in on your computer later. All of your questions and answers will be on your own private personal little web page that ChaCha keeps for you. You create a free account, sign in and you are set!  Never again will you have to pick your brain for the answer to a question. Never again will you be at a loss for the answer and never again will you let that stupid idiot you are debating have the last word. Because now you are armed with ChaCha, and you truly have the world’s information at your disposal, or should I say, at your fingertips!
