What is it?
Quizilla is a user generated online quiz website. It originally started as a website for quizzes, such as personality quizzes. Many users were posting “quizzes” that were actually chapters of fan fiction, so a legitimate section for stories was added even though it is not always used. In 2005 and 2006, the website underwent multiple major changes and additions, including a section for poems and lyrics. On October 16, 2006, Viacom’s MTV Networks announced it had bought Quizilla for an undisclosed sum of money. Quizilla’s message boards, introduced due to popular request, acted as a community for Quizilla users. There were different sections, like anime, books, poetry, and movies, to discuss different topics. There had been many changes to the forum since its launch in April 2006, most noticeably in the types of content permitted on the forums, when a series of controversial threads called for a rapid increase in monitoring and rule enforcement.
Why it’s cool?
What started as a quiz site, has grown in the past 8 years in a social media site where especially boys and girls post their poems, stories and play games en fill in and search for quizzes. Quizilla is a subsidiary of Nickelodeon. The site’s layout is very easy and the advertisements are focused on kids. It’s a safe and easy way for children to connect, imagine and create. On social media like hyves, they ages are from 6 years till 80 years. It’s cool to give kids their own place to network, and work in a safe environment.
