Facebook removes Questions feature

Today we noticed something was missing on Facebook - the Questions feature!

Originally launched in July 2010, Facebook's Questions feature was created due to the rise in popularity of the Q&A website known as Quora. It was dubbed the 'Quora-killer', but it did not all go to plan. The interface was buggy and confusing. Quora grew in a controlled manner; there was an air of seriousness and attention to quality on Quora that made it a consistently satisfying read, whereas the quality of Facebook's questions deteriorated rapidly.

It seems the closure of Questions has been in progress since about October of 2012, and we no longer have the feature. Did you ever use the Questions option when using Facebook? Was it beneficial to you? Let us know!
