Twitter co-founder Biz Stone launches Jelly app, a social Q&A network for mobile


Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has officially announced the launch of Jelly, a question-and-answer-based search engine for iOS and Android.

Basically Jelly is an app that lets you ask questions, push them out to your network, and get rapid responses.

“If you have a question, there’s someone out there that knows the answer,” Stone says in a video accompanying the official blog post. The app places a heavy emphasis on visuals, encouraging users to post photos and ask questions about what they’re seeing.

Jelly was co-founded by Ben Finkel, who co-founded Fluther and Stone. The San Francisco-based company, which has been in stealth mode until Tuesday, has 8 employees. Backers include Spark Capital as well as fellow Twitter co-founders Jack Dorsey and Ev Williams. Also on the roster of investors: Al Gore, Bono, and LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman.

With already established networks such as Quora, how well do you think Jelly will fare?
