QuibbloQuizzes, polls, surveys, and tests have their own place on the Internet. The ability to make them has been around since the beginning, and it keeps getting easier and better. Quibblo is a new community-based site where users can make their own ‘quibblet’ — that is, a poll, quiz, survey or test — and get them answered by the Quibblo community.

There are two basic things you can do on the site — create and take. The creation page has four sections: creating a poll (“Who will win the superbowl?”), a survey (“A Health Habits Survey”), a quiz (“Match the states’ and capitals”), and test (“What kind of a shopper are you?”). The interface is very eye-candyish, easy and intuitive: anyone and their grandma can ask questions to the world. Once a quibblet is created, it can be shared and embedded on sites and blogs, or left to be answered by the community.Quibblo

Taking a quibblet on the site is a matter of selecting one from their ‘take’ page through the various sections (laid out by category, most popular, tags, etc.), or for those times when you feel a bit fortuitous, the ‘random’ page. Quibblets can rated upon, and its easy to see their initial idea — which is to be a YouTube for questions, polls, surveys, and tests.

Currently, Quibblo is a privately-funded company with competitors such as dPolls, Vizu, Twiigs, and old-timers like Quizilla. Bebo, one of the most popular social networks in the world (notably in Europe and Australia/New Zealand), started off with a similar premise and a twist of social networking, although it’s branched out into many other areas since.

Quibblo is a well-executed concept, but it’s unclear of where they will be able to position themselves with the amount of competition in the market. In this space. perhaps getting lucky is their — and anyone else’s — best bet?
