What is ASKfm?
ASKfm is a social media service based on asking and answering questions, in which posts can be anonymous. Once you create a profile, you can post questions for other members to answer and comment on questions asked by other members. You can also create photo polls, by uploading two images and asking members to choose their favourite, or perform a ‘shoutout’, where your question is targeted to those located nearby. Participating on the ASKfm platform is incentivised via leaderboards and earning ASK coins, which can be exchanged for benefits such as premium backgrounds for your posts.
As a member you can follow other members and locate members you are connected with on other social media services including Facebook and Twitter.
