For me, I guess it depends on how you define worth?
There a lot good questions and blogs to comment on and information to take away from the various post. In terms of leads and actual business generated from the activity on Tulia, I would say no.
I only visit Trulia after my important business of the day has been completed and very often in the late evening while catching up on the news. Answering a question only takes a few moments, but reading through the previous answers is important. Try not to be repetitive and pay special attention to when the question was asked. I made that horrible mistake in the beginning. I think I answered a question that was roughly two years old. Ugh.
Quickly learned the ropes since then.
If I get points great, but more the more important issue is, who have I helped today.
To say it has made me one dime is not true in my case. I have gotten a dozen "leads" but none have panned out and most of those people never replay to my emails or calls. I get some emails saying - I saw your listing on Trulia and I send them an email with the full listing and never hear back. I can't say it is something that will make you any money, but I enjoy trying to help people and answer their questions. I paid for the Pro status and have recently dropped it since it never did much for me. As someone below said, it can't hurt.
The more exposure you can give yourself on the internet the better chances you have on attracting leads.
By answering questions and blogging about the real estate market in your area shows that you are an active and knowledgeable agent in your market.
Not only will you gain more exposure but you might also learn a thing or two from viewing others content.
Yes, I think it's worth it!

It really depends on what your time is worth.
If you could be interviewing first time home buyers instead of spending that time at the keyboard you should be where the buyers are.
However, if you have consistent slack time, or you have purposefully focused on this, and similar, media resources and will commit time to it, just like any activity in which you commit to, you will see results.
I would advise you conduct you own research for your specific area to determine if Trulia is the best venue for your purpose. You may discover Trulia to be a minor player in your geographic area. Secondly, understand who the buyer and seller is that participates on Trulia. Never let the convenience of social media place a barrier between you and real live people.
Best of success.

The real question is whether your Pro Status is worth it?
