Can Quora create celebrities? by Rohan Jain

Answer by Rohan Jain:

Well, Quora has definitely created one big celebrity – Balaji Viswanathan.

Let us see some facts about him:

  • He is the highest followed Quoran of all time, with close to 290,000 followers
  • There is a separate topic on Quora named Balaji Viswanathan, which has 3,600 questions and 43,500 followers. People want to hear his views on almost everything, from Indian politics to world politics.
  • He has been invited to give speeches at IIT Kanpur, IIT Bombay, IIT Delhi, IIT Varanasi, IIT Hyderabad, NIT Warangal, BITS Pilani and many other colleges.
  • I have been told in the comments that there is an app on play store where one can view all answers by Balaji Viswanathan

Balaji Viswanathan has many other major achievements. He is the Vice President of Invento. So he might be popular because of his other achievements too.

But Quora is always associated with his name on the posters wherever he is invited, which indicates that Quora has definitely played a very major role in his popularity. I doubt there is any Quoran who has not heard about Balaji Viswanathan.
