Topics group articles that have the same title by different users. This feature allows you to find the best article for a given topic, and it is one of the key innovations of OurBigBook Web.
Topics are a bit like Twitter hashtags or Quora questions: their goal is to centralize knowledge about a specific subject by different people at a single location.
