When visiting Area 51 for Chinese Language I noted that our site has a relatively low number of questions per day asked at 3.9/day when 15/per day is considered healthy. What are some things that can be done to encourage more posting of questions?
A quick review shows that a large number of users post answers but not questions (nothing wrong with this but just wondering how we might improve the stats). I began to think about the link to the stats on the questions page:
Which shows that just below the link to more site stats, an option for sharing the website on Social Media. I note that the options are primarily Western-based services and do not include the many social media outlets in Asia.
Facts which give rise to the following additional questions:
Would it be possible to extend the sharing capability to other widely used social sharing services?
Would it be useful to create a new badge for number of times the site has been shared with friends?
If the community decides that either of these features are useful, how would they be implemented?
