What?! Wikipedia is inaccurate?
How accurate is the Internet? It honestly just depends on the resources one uses for the
information that is being researched. Just because it is in the Internet doesn’t mean the
information is valid.
As surprising as it sounds Wikipedia is not a reliable source. anyone who is anyone can go
edit the information and it might look like its reliable when it’s not.
We as a society have a tendency to run to the Internet and read the first thing to pop on or
page. But how many of us actually check if our recourses have validated information from
reliable criteria. Is the information credible are we getting information from a bloggers point of
view or someone who has actually done research on the subject. Sometimes we rely on
information we agree on instead of what is factual, because as human beings we like to hear
what we want. We should pay attention to what side the writer is on. We need to check if the
Information we look for is sponsored and whether is being sponsored how could it affect the
reliability of our information.
As a student research should be done on the research we look for. To make sure we are
receiving the information we need. We want credible and reliable information; what is a paper
with just opinions and facts people say to be facts. Our information online should be as accurate
as math is.
