Find An Expert In Almost Anything On The Internet
Do you need help fighting a parking ticket or finding a dance audition? Do you need advice on how to build a home theatre? The answers are easy to find. “Expert” websites have been popping on the Web, putting you in touch with credentialed experts on demand.
The concept has come a long way from the late 1990s. The new version of the Web, known as Web 2.0, has spawned a new generation of expert networks. Easy to use, the sites in minutes let you track down and speak with an expert on anything anthropology to xylophones.
BitWine.com lets you browse experts by subject and connect immediately via Skype, an Internet phone service. Experts set a rate per-minute for consulting. Payment is instantaneous through PayPal, a financial transaction site. You can post your own rating and comments about experts after speaking with them, helping future users.
Even with rating systems and live communication, you must still beware. Some of the experts are unrated and may turn out to be not-so-expert after all. And before paying for expert advice, you could check out some of the many free websites out there, such as Yahoo! Answers, AllExperts, or Ask Me Help Desk. If you need fast advice, an expert site may be just the answer for you.
