A prompt is like asking a question or giving a command to a computer program, like Perplexity, to get it to do something for you. It's the starting point of your conversation. It’s setting the stage for what you want to know or get done.
💡 Think of it as asking a chef for a specific dish—you'll get what you ask for, so it's important to be clear and specific.
Anatomy of a Prompt
Example: Seamlessly blend your goal and background into an easy-to-read sentence.
