Google's Knol Open Now

After several months of testing, Google has finally launched its knowledge-sharing portal called Knol where people can share their opinions and views about a specific topic.

Main points about the Knol -
  • People can contribute their knowledge online and make it accessible to everyone with this site.
  • Authorship - Every knol will have an author (or group of authors) who put their name behind their content.
  • Moderated Collaboration - With this feature, any reader can make suggested edits to a knol article which the author may then choose to accept, reject, or modify before these contributions become visible to the public.
  • Strong Community tools - which allow for many modes of interaction between readers and authors. People can submit comments, rate, or write a review of a knol.
  • Revenue Sharing - If an author chooses to include ads, Google will provide the author with a revenue share from the proceeds of those ad placements.
