The Truth According To Wikipedia

May 9, 2024 | Social, Technology, Videos

The online world is abuzz with the growing popularity of Wikipedia, the free online encyclopedia. For the past two years, it has been topping the lists of the world’s most used websites and it’s becoming increasingly used for search engine queries. However, in spite of its ubiquity many people are still unaware of what exactly it is and where it comes from.

Wikipedia is an open-source collaborative project that began in 2001. Since then, anyone with internet access has been able to contribute to and edit its pages making it a constantly updated source of reliable information. It now boasts over five million articles in English alone and is available in over 300 languages, making it one of the largest sources of knowledge on the web.

With such a vast repository at our fingertips, Wikipedia makes an invaluable resource for anyone looking for quick research material or seeking out new information. But this doesn’t mean that users should take everything written there as gospel truth; while information may be accurate and updated regularly, readers must always verify any facts before citing them elsewhere.

For those wanting to know more about how Wikipedia works, why not check out the documentary “Truth In Numbers?” It takes us behind the scenes to meet some of Wikipedia’s most dedicated contributors who have made it what it is today – a powerful tool for research and collaboration across cultures and borders. The documentary shows just how far human potential can go when encouraged by freely available tools like Wikipedia. So why not take some time out to watch this fascinating film!
