Brainly is an educational technology company based in New York City, New York, United States. It is owned by Polish company

Why It's Severely Rotten

  1. It encourages cheating.
  2. Many of the answers for the questions are not right, so if a student finds the incorrect answer and puts it on their assignment, they will get an answer wrong, meaning it's possible the student will get a bad grade because of the incorrect answer on a problem.
  3. You can't ask personal questions such as "What is your favorite movie?" Because if you do, the question will end up being removed because Brainly is for homework questions only
  4. Too many ads. For example, if you do not sign up for an account, you can only have 3 answers. Once you waste them all, you will be either forced to sign up for an account or to watch an ad to get 3 more answers. The ads can be unnecessarily long, meaning if you are having to rush, there is a chance you will not be able to finish the assignment on time.
    • Even worse, if you don't want to watch ads for answers, you need to pay money for a Brainly Plus account.
  5. Some questions show nothing when they ask a question that requires answers or pictures.
  6. You can report answers for completely trollish reasons.
  7. Some of the questions that they ask aren't even real questions, so they just give out free points for "answering" it.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Some counterparts like the Turkish counterpart,Eodev don't have some of the rotten reasons.
  2. The community is actually very nice.
