Remember Quora? The super hyped Q&A site from Facebook’s founders? Of course you do, even though it’s not being discussed as much as it once was.

How do we know you still remember the site? Because comScore data reveals unique visits to the site are still trending upward over the last seven months. This is happening, despite a fade in the hype, which we’re measuring through a drop off in searches for Quora through Google trends.

Looks like hype really is overrated. It’s about building a real product.
