Today people use the Internet to find the answer totheir questions. They mostly rather ask other users onCommunity Question Answering (CQA) sites for an answer thanjust searching theweb. However, as Social Media becomes morepopular, users tend to ask their questions on these networks, andignore the benefits CQA sites offer. On the other hand, automaticQuestion Answering (QA) systems are unable to comprehendquestions including images and implementing necessaryalgorithms for such systems is expensive. In this paper, wepropose QA process based on Crowdsourcing, which runs on aQA open system. The system benefits from Crowdsourcingadvantages, besides automation techniques. The model isoperational and we have demonstrated that questions could bereceived from different heterogeneous sources, if the suitableprocedures are used, and that the answer is obtained from thecrowd in the proposed process based on Crowdsourcing.Moreover, the first Iranian crowdsourcing platform forcomplicated tasks is implemented, which could be used as a basisfor future research.
