Wikipedia- The Story behind the Biggest Online Encyclopedia

Who in this world wouldn’t have heard about Wikipedia? Possibly all of us at this time would have accessed it for once for getting the information about something. Well, this was the actual purpose with which Wikipedia was created. To give the information of the world to the world. In 2001 two friends came up with the idea of making an online encyclopedia. It was aimed to share everything about the world, and the founders made the contemplations on working in-house to achieve this aim.

But the aim and the strategy didn’t match and this is where the change came in. Wikipedia owners came up with the idea of announcing the platform to be open for anyone. The aim to get the information of the world to be on the platform was now to be achieved through the contributions of people all around the world. But not as easily as you think. Each contribution was to be done in a proper and decided way. Such as keeping the writing to be informal and non-promotional tone. Moreover, strong references, non-controversial topics, and such other things were in the major requirements.

Also, it became professional with Wikipedia writers for hire and Wikipedia Managers being in the world. These Wikipedia writers for hire and Wikipedia managers make the contemplations on bringing the Wikipedia pages to life, and they have the expertise in making the Wikipedia pages for you and getting your subject to be fit for this platform.

Well, Wikipedia at the start was just an idea of the online encyclopedia, but now it has become an online encyclopedia as well as a content marketing platform, and that is the biggest change that has happened to this platform since its start.
