Should We Trust Wikipedia?
With the contributions of the internet, all aspects of our lives have changed. Today, we do not have to wait for the weather forecast part on the television to know if it will rain tomorrow. All we have to do is look at our computer, smartphone, or any other device with a web connection. This is perfect and we are saving huge amounts of our time, but when it comes to reaching the pieces of information, is it that simple?
Wikipedia offers us 6,286,584 articles and it is just in the English language. In total, Wikipedia services the whole world in 285 different languages. Impressive, isn’t it? But did you know that many titles are editing by a person? It seems harmless if that person has information about the subject, but he/she does not have to have any pieces of information about the subject.
Let’s suppose that I am a gardener. I do not have any information about molecular biology. In daily life, it should have to stop me but on Wikipedia, I can write anything I want to.
We suggest you search your subject on different platforms, one is never enough.
