Quick Take: Path & Quora
NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- "Mad Money" Research Director Nicole Urken was with her brother Ross Kenneth Urken and Jim Cramer from TheStreet. The siblings are hoping to help Cramer understand Path and Quora, two social media add-ins.
The two companies have obvious similarities and differences. Both are in the early stages where the main focus is growing their user base and achieving high traffic. They also connect the social media we already use, such as Twitter and Facebook (FB).
However, they do differ in purpose. Quora is used more as a question-and-answer database, such as, "what's the best hotel in Rio de Janeiro?" Path is essentially another form of social media, but with a limit of friends per user capped at 150.
