Wikipedia is a free open-source encyclopedia that can be edited openly, and has morphed into the largest general reference work on the internet. As a result, it is one of the most popular and most commonly referenced websites on the World Wide Web, and consists of tens of millions of
articles that are translated into hundreds of languages. It is largely credited with the death of print encyclopedia, as it is free and available to more people than print encyclopedia ever was.
It is constantly being edited, to update the lives of public figures, which has caused controversy on the topic of celebrity culture and privacy. The website’s content consists mainly of history, society, politics, and culture, and of course, this has caused a lot of controversy over whether there is a systematic bias or not, and the fact that it can be edited openly, of course, remains controversial, as the website constantly needs to be monitored to prevent misinformation.
Those who work with Wikipedia help to inform as many people on countless subjects for free, and maintain the non-profit business model. Of course, businesses are constantly conscious of their Wikipedia articles for reasons such as brand reputation as well, in the same manner that public figures are.
