Poutsch could very well be the angriest virtual place on Earth, but fortunately it’s not. You see, the website uses the power of inquiries as its fuel, and as history often repeats, questions tend to ruffle feathers. But we’re not here for philosophy class, are we? We’re here to look at a legitimate, awesome social network that focuses on debate.

The website is in the realm of “public social networking”, something apps like Spraffl Spraffl: Is Anonymous Local Networking The Way Of The Future?

The basic premise of the site is simple – ask questions, and answer questions. It’s not really that hard.

    Poutsch and Bitrix24 are the two best tools with really stupid names.

    Thanks a lot for the review.
    Poutsch is not focusing on open ended questions because there are already a lot of great products in that field. However, we think that other social polling tools are not as good as they could be.
