A new, but different Q&A site where topics follow you, rather than you following them, is the vision of Beepl. Recently launched and using semantic technology, Beepl analyzes users’ connected LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook accounts to determine what they’re interested in. Then it presents them with questions that fit those interests.

Mashable brought this to our attention in their article, “Beepl Adds a Personalized Twist to Q&A.” This is a novel and interesting approach to reducing typical Google searches. I, for one, would appreciate the convenience, because the answer to most questions at home and sometimes at work is, “I don’t know, Google it.”
