What is ChaCha?
ChaCha is a great place to express your knowledge and opinions, get advice, or just have fun meeting great new people like you! Part of our unique formula is the ability for you to pay-it-forward by helping others with their questions in real-time.
Does it cost anything to use the ChaCha app?
ChaCha is free to download and use.
How old do you have to be to use ChaCha?
This App is designed for a mature audience. It is labelled as 17+. If you’re not 17 please reconsider if you really want to be here. Anyone who appears to be under 13 years old will be booted, as required by COPPA.
Where did the Guides go?
There are no Guides in the ChaCha app. We are building a community of people like you to help each other. If you are looking for faster homework answers, check out our Guide-powered Homework Hero app.
Who answers questions if there are no more Guides?
Users answer each other’s questions. It’s a growing community. Right now it’s great for advice and opinions, and we expect it to work great for all kinds of questions as we grow. Everyone knows about something, right! But you should be warned that there will be some wrong answers and some playful answers and maybe even mean ones. Just Report the answer if you don’t like it (use the … beside it) or Block the user if he/she is a nuisance (tap their icon and then on their profile page click the …)
Where can I see answers to my questions?
The fourth icon at the bottom will take you to your Activity Wall, where you can find all answers to your questions, good vibes you’ve received, and questions posed by the people you follow. If you asked questions in the old ChaCha app, you need to login to ChaCha.com to see them.
How can I contact ChaCha if I have a problem with the app?
E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org
How do I ask a question?
Tap the center question mark icon at the bottom and type your question into the box provided.
Do I have to take a picture or video to ask a question on ChaCha?
No. While images and video allow you to enhance your questions and answers, and the likelihood you will get responses, they are not required.
What are “good vibes”?
Good vibes are ChaCha’s way of letting someone know you liked their question or comment. To send good vibes to a user, tap the heart icon under their post. When you receive good vibes, your screen will vibrate! Unlike other service’s “likes,” though, you can’t take good vibes back, so give them out like hugs.
What is Explore?
The Explore page shows popular and high-velocity questions over the last 24 hours. See what everyone is talking about!
What is iKnow?
The iKnow page shows recent questions from the entire ChaCha community, as well as recommended questions that match your interests. Every time you ask a question, ChaCha reviews your keywords to identify what topics you are interested in. By identifying these topics, ChaCha is able to personalize your iKnow page with questions that reflect your interests.
WHAT CAN I ASK?
What kinds of questions can I ask?
Almost anything you can imagine! The most successful posts on ChaCha revolve around opinions or advice. The more opinionated questions that encourage conversation and debate do the best.
- How do you like my outfit? (accompanied by a photo or video)
- Brady or Manning?
- What is your favorite pizza restaurant in Chicago?
- What is a good gift for my boyfriend’s 17th birthday?
- Should I buy the new Call of Duty or Battlefield?
Be creative! Users do get bored when they see common questions, so the more unique and interesting yours is, the more answers you will receive.
Can I ask questions about sex?
Of course! Ask away.
Is bad language allowed?
Is there anything I can’t ask?
What about Homework questions?
To ask Homework related questions, download ChaCha’s Homework Hero app. You can ask them in the new ChaCha app, and you might get some great answers, but a lot of homework questions are boring to many users and may not get answered by the community.
What is this Homework Hero I’ve heard so much about?
Homework Hero is ChaCha’s sister app (iPhone only so far). It allows users to ask all of their homework or fact-based questions and receive a quick response from a paid guide. If most or all of your questions on ChaCha are homework-related, Homework Hero is a great option for you! It’s free in the App Store.
Can I post selfies and ask people what they think?
Using the service like “Hot or Not” is frowned upon and discouraged by our Acceptable Use Policy. ChaCha wants to be something different. However, we do like to see you, and if the photo is relevant to a legitimate question (“What color should I dye my hair?”), it is allowed.
Who can see my posts?
The whole world; unless you limit your visibility to only your followers. Take advantage of the app’s openness to meet new and interesting people and get advice from a wide audience! You can send direct questions to specific users using their @username, though those questions can still be viewed by others. If you wish to hide your identity for a specific question, you can ask a question anonymously by toggling your avatar on the “Ask” page.
Can I post anonymous questions?
Absolutely! To post a question anonymously, tap your avatar on the Ask a Question screen. A msg will inform you that you are now asking anonymously and your icon will go grey. You’re good to go!
Why can’t I answer anonymously?
We purposefully do not allow anonymous answers because internet users tend to behave badly when they can hide behind an anonymous name. Trust us; it’s in everyone’s best interests.
Do my questions get posted to Facebook or Twitter when I “Ask”?
No. Your questions in ChaCha do not automatically get posted on Facebook or Twitter. However, to the top right of the “Ask” button, you have the option to toggle the Facebook and Twitter icons if you wish to share your questions on either or both social networks.
Will my personal information be shared?
