Hint, hint: Go and copy as many Yahoo Answers and eHow etc Q&A's as you can manage, sort them out into related groups and build sites out of each group. 500-1500 pages per site should suffice and when you've posted those pages DO NOTHING ELSE with the site, like ever.
Eventually you will outrank these mega sites with their own USER GENERATED Q&A's when the questions get so deeply buried in their site they can't be found easily (without search) and since you're not adding all of the extra HTML crap to the pages Google will love your site better. If it doesn't add some youtube videos and flickr images and it WILL like you better. (G says that's not how it works but it's working JUST FINE for the mashup outfits I see on my keywords).
USER GENERATED sites like what this seems to be aiming to become have "use this free content" written all over them. Of course you're free to give better answers, user generated stuff has a high % of crapola. Yes, i'm promoting spam because that's what it is - ALL questions have been answered on other sites ALREADY and this move by Facebook is aimed squarely at claiming the traffic those pages get.
