So people gain recognition for building and reviewing and approving good maps. A map gets built, then people upvote or downvote it. If the map gets enough upvotes then it can be implemented. People gain recognition or are upvoted for making good maps and upvoting good maps. People who have high recognition can implement maps easier or have more say with their upvotes.As Mahalo struggled to retain users, another Q&A site began to boom. Quora, launched in 2010 by two former Facebook employees, quickly grew in popularity. Unlike Mahalo, Quora did not offer a single cent to anyone answering questions. Why then, have users stayed engaged with Quora but not with Mahalo, despite its monetary rewards?
In Mahalo’s case, executives assumed that paying users would drive repeat engagement with the site. After all, people like money, right?
However, Quora demonstrated that social rewards and the variable reinforcement of recognition from peers proved to be a much more salient motivator. Quora instituted an upvoting system that reports user satisfaction with answers and provides a steady stream of social feedback. Quora’s rewards have proven more attractive than Mahalo’s because the incentive to answer a question is driven by the anticipation of social, not financial, reward. When it comes to online communities, the need to connect and contribute turns out to be a more powerful motivator than collecting cash.
