Quora's Tooltip for Feature Discovery

August 6, 2017
Tooltips

As part of the first time experience, Quora uses a single tooltip to show new users the value of upvoting. 

Why this is really good UX:

  • The tooltip is targeted to new users. It would be out of context for highly engaged users who are well-versed in upvoting. 
  • The copy on the tooltip doesn’t just explain how to upvote (which is pretty evident). Instead, it focuses on why upvoting can provide a more personalized experience for the user. 
  • Single blue tooltips for feature discovery are very popular right now
