Using Wikipedia To Join the Digital Age

The internet has changed the world and it’s a big part of everyday life. It has changed the fundamental way we do most things. From communication to entertainment, and even financial transactions, it can all be done through the internet. In the comfort of home no less. Progress can be a wonderful thing sometimes. 

Out of the countless innovations brought on by the internet, there is arguably none more well known than the website Wikipedia. There are articles for a ton of topics, and it’s translated into many different languages. That makes it global. Who hasn’t been caught in a Wiki Hole, clicking from topic to topic, soaking up as much information as their heart desired? 

When doing research papers and essays for school, the one thing teachers stressed was not using Wikipedia as a reference source. It was pretty hard not to take a glance at a Wikipedia article, just to have a starting off point. For one university the use of Wikipedia is not only being encouraged but is now a part of the grading process. The University of Sydney, in Australia, actually has some of their students creating articles and making Wikipedia edits as a part of their coursework. This has actually been found to produce a better quality of work from students, especially since what they put up can be viewed by anyone interested in looking, not just their professor.

Wikipedia is great for research of any kind. A lot of times when using Google one of the first search results is a Wikipedia link. Businesses are starting to understand that. Wikipedia articles for all manner of companies both big and small are starting to pop up, meaning if you don’t know what you’re doing it may be best to hire a Wiki writer to do the work for you. No matter how much content the page has, it will give a basic run down of what that company is all about. Sometimes they even show stock prices. One company, Get Your Wiki, is offering their Wikipedia writing services, which entail creating, monitoring, and maintaining Wikipedia articles for their clients, who can be businesses, non-profits, and even individuals. They have a staff of Wikipedia editors for hire that has already created multiple articles, so they guarantee article approval and protection from malicious Wikipedia editors. Sounds like a good deal for those trying to join the digital age.
