Please explain the purpose and operation of this site.[edit]

This article is not very useful, as it says little about the purpose of Ask.fm, users to whom it is directed, fees collected, etc. 76.121.0.141 (talk) 23:55, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

It just needs to be updated to be more informative rather than a subjective piece that reads just like a newspaper trying to report a story. What more needs to be discussed? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.29.186.184 (talk) 21:25, 23 August 2013 (UTC)


In light of recent suicides, I think that changing the article's tone would be a disservice. Something needs to be done about ask.fm and the article correctly cites glaring problems. 173.70.124.107 (talk) 19:43, 14 September 2013 (UTC)

This site is an encyclopedia. It is supposed to be unbiased. Encyclopedias are not designed to discuss whether or not "something needs to be done." I think adding more information on the founders and the function of the site would be a good start. 99.184.249.145 (talk) 04:29, 27 September 2013 (UTC)


The purpose of Ask.fm is as follows: users sign up in order to receive and answer questions from anonymous or registered visitors and ask other users their own questions. Questions may contain text and links, answers may contain text, links, photos and videos. Users may disable anonymous questions in their privacy settings. Unanswered questions may only be seen by the recipient and may be answered or deleted without publishing. Users may remove their answers or disable their profile at any time. Users are not required to disclose any private or sensitive information about themselves to other users and, in fact, are discouraged from doing so ( http://ask.fm/about/safety ).--83.99.202.187 (talk) 23:56, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
