It is very easy to go to google, type in something you want to research and go to the first wiki page that pops up. I actually use wiki pages for useless information but have always been taught not to use is for educational purposes. Wiki pages allow anyone to write, edit and delete information whether they are educated in the topic or not. Because wiki pages are not valid resources, they are not to be used in research papers of any sort because of their validity. Wiki pages can be used in a positive way also by allow professionals in the same field to share information with each other. Information and research on topics can change daily and this would be a good way to stay connected on specific topics.
