Microsoft has launched a beta for Windows Live QnA, a search engine that allows web users to ask and answer questions.
Designed to be used with Microsoft’s Spaces blogging service, the application also allows users to vote on the best responses to questions.
Another feature in the service includes a tagging system, which enables users to attach keywords and phrases in questions, making them easier to find on the system.
Bloggers can also list questions they have asked and answered. Questions with adult content can be screened out by users of the service.
Yahoo is among companies already offering a similar service on its web portal.
