TECHNICAL FIELD

[0001]    Aspects of the present disclosure relate to individualized online quizzes.

BACKGROUND

[0002]    A social network can be an online system that provides a forum for geographically separated users to interact with one another, where those users have defined a relationship between one another.  Users can control who can view their information by identifying particular relationships with other users, and can also find new friends from the group of other people who are "friends" of their own friends.  Social networks can be aimed at different types of social interaction, such as friendship and business networking.  A user of a social network can have a profile page (e.g., a web page on the social network) that provides information about the user to other users of the social network.  A profile can include information regarding a user's acquaintance relationships (e.g., friends, colleagues, schoolmates, etc.) on the social network.

[0003]    Users sometimes create trivia quizzes concerning topics that interest them, and then challenge their friends with the quizzes.  For example, users may create a webpage with a quiz including questions about themselves, their favorite movies, or their favorite bands.  Such quizzes are typically simple text-based quizzes with a list of questions and a corresponding list of answers.  Accordingly, a need exists for an improved solution for online quizzes.
