Qwanz is at once a platform, a tool, a community, and a mentality.
Qwanz is home to news junkies yearning for a place to react after reading the day’s latest; to concerned citizens searching for wisdom in the crowd; to social advocates looking to compare perspectives around their cause; to fed-up bystanders ready to raise their voice and be heard; to political activists with the know-how to get information where it needs to go; and to ordinary people with opinions, questions, and distinct viewpoints that add value to the public dialogue.

Influence the ongoing conversation on any topic you care about, mobilize your network around a question, advocate on behalf of public opinion, and have a good time, voting, commenting, and surveying freely with Qwanz.
Here are the highlights of what's new in this version:
• You requested the ability to skip a poll. Now you can!
• We’ve made considerable speed improvements – so sharing your opinion is now much faster!
• Many of you requested the ability to leave comments on the question page instead of just on the answer page. We made it possible!
• We’ve extended the default time between polls to give you more time to read comments and leave yours. By the way, you can always adjust that in your settings.
• We’ve implemented a new auto login so you’ll be immediately logged into the site and mobile app on your next visit.
Finally, we thought you’d like knowing that based on the demand we’ve had, Qwanz is now going GLOBAL. The app now supports: French and Spanish languages in addition to our US, UK and India sites.
