I've been on Nairaland for over three years now, before identifying the benefits of using Quora. Though Quora is very informative but currently in Nigeria, Quora rates below average on the popularity scale.
That's to say that Nigerians are not active on Quora. It's only few people that knows about Quora and her potentials.
If Nigerians get to know about Quora, indisputably they will dump Nairaland for Quora coz these days Nairaland is becoming more of a news website, with childish comments rather than having meaningful contents.

Quora can never replace Nairaland in Nigeria. Nairaland covers a local niche where people in that area only love gossip stories and entertainment more than anything else. And that's also the reason why social networks like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram survive in a country like Nigeria.
From my on point of view, nairaland is more popular. That is because, the questions asked and responded to are far more formal and professional than that of nairaland. In addition, Nigerians are becoming more unserious with issues that need sober reflections or urgent action. Everything is seen or turned to a joke just to ease the level of hardship in the country. Nairaland is the reflection of Nigerian youth, which makes up the largest portion of the Nigerian populace.
The correct answer is No. NL is so popular in Nigeria and some other parts of Africa. @salim, yes you are right, Everyknows is similar to Qoura. Infact the truth is that Everyknows is imitating Quora. But if i may asked ooo, @Poster... What do you need this answer for?
