Waiting for my answer now... The tagline doesn't really seem right. This feels more like you ask a question and then you wait to get an answer sometime in the future. If I am super busy I kind of want an answer right away. As of now I have no way of knowing how long it will take to get a response. Do I come back in a 30 seconds? a day? a week? If this is meant to help busy people vs. googling and looking for an answer shouldn't the answer be immediate (like a google results?).

I recently got access to the beta and asked for a product recommendation. The answer was surprisingly thorough and helpful.

Congrats on the relaunch, @biz and team! You announced that Jelly was coming back earlier this year. I see the potential in a social search engine, but why will it work this time? What's different with Jelly 2.0 or are there new consumer behaviors you've discovered?

P.S. Here's the original Jelly post on Product Hunt a few years ago, before we had threaded comments. #throwbackthursday

@rrhoover @biz I'm interested in whether non-direct social search would be better.

I had access to the beta but I never wanted to answer questions - or I put them to one side to 'answer later' - which I didn't get around to.

What about asking a question and receiving curated responses of others from different social channels. Pair that with direct Q&A's too.

e.g. 'Looking for a [specific] product recommendation from IKEA' - X people bought that item and said A,B,C. Ryan and Biz answered and said D and E, respectively.

With that input you could make an informed decision.

@rrhoover There's a lot that's different, we built Jelly 2 from scratch. Jelly is now a search engine. Your questions are anonymous and they are routed to people who know the answer—not your friends.

@bentossell @rrhoover We plan to add re-use of very helpful answers. We do see duplicate questions and we already have a fantastic answer so it makes sense. We only have five engineers so we need to grow so we can build all the stuff we want.

@biz @rrhoover a company here in cardiff are doing interesting things with data around questions like this :)
