I highly doubt it ! Ask is a question and answer site , not a social media site ! I like it just as it is . No , I don't think they will ever do anything like that ! That's what Facebook is for . You can talk some to people on comments and that's it.
It would be nice...the added bonus could continue a debate or help with homework for further info. Especially on the App...I hate scrolling forever to get back to someone. If they don't, that's alright..its still a helpful site when used correctly.
