3. Lookalike Audience on Quora

A lookalike audience is used to create an audience list based on an existing audience list. This term called by the same name on Facebook ads and by “Similar Audience” name on Google ads. Quora lets you create a lookalike audience from an audience that exists. Just like Facebook, you can define your target size which is from one to ten percent.
