Abstract:As an emergence of social question-answering (Q&A) services has spurred the growth of social information seeking through question-answering interactions in order to share knowledge and information for users’ need in their learning processes, the current study focuses on conceptualizing and gaining a holistic view of what motivates students to visit social Q&A services and engage in social interactions for sharing and seeking knowledge. The findings show that an immediate help, learning, verification are the top motivations for asking a question, while altruism, learning, and self-enjoyment are the top motivations for answering a question on Brainly, an online social learning Q&A service.
