Ask Me Anything (AMA) is one of the more entertaining things you can do online. The brainchild of Reddit (the self-described ‘front page of the Internet’), AMA is basically just a series of chats that allow you to engage in interactive Q&A sessions with all manner of people (usually celebrities or other current news-makers). If you’ve ever taken a spin by the AMA website, your first impression was likely that it’s a little overwhelming; it’s text-heavy and hard to skim. Thanks to their new dedicated app, it is much easier to access and follow particular threads.
Loading the app, you can browse hot, recent, and favourited topics. You can also perform searches based on name or topic, or browse by category (including entertainment, music, sports, politics, games, or business).
There is no question that AMA is pretty much just a time sink, but there are worse ways to entertain yourself. You never know exactly who will be online and eager to answer your questions, but a quick peek today turned up a large number of options. To give you a taste, allow me to share a few that might be of interest:
The son of an Oscar winning actor (but he doesn’t reveal specifically which one) – A series of questions determined that this person has a brother, his name is ‘exciting’ but normal, he grew up in New York, and that he plays all sorts of instruments with mediocre skill.
Somebody who had their upper jaw broken, moved, and plated to fix their underbite – This user shares their post op healing time, discusses what the process was like, and explains why they decided to go ahead with the procedure.
Denzel Washington – The famous actor reveals many personal details, thoughts, and opinions; sharing with Reddit readers that he is “DEFINITELY an Eminem fan.”
