Sunday, December 1, 2013
Ever since the internet has become widely available, it has replaced books as the primary source of information. People go online when they want to research or look up information related to anything under the sun. Seldom, if ever, does the internet disappoint when you type in a search query. You are bound to find something relevant to what you are looking for.
The next time you want to find information, you can check out any of the following five best websites for knowledge:
Though there have been doubts about the validity of the information you find on Wikipedia, there is no doubt that it is the most widely used website for knowledge. It is an open-source encyclopaedia, i.e. anyone can contribute new information or edit the information already available on the website.
Do you have a question you can’t find the answer to? Your best bet is to post the question on wiseGEEK.com. In all likelihood, the answer to that question would already be available there.
eHow.com is the most comprehensive and popular how-to guide on the web. You can find information on how to virtually do any task along with general information on various topics.
The Britannica Encyclopaedia emerged on the scene several years ago as a series of books and you can find all the information contained in them online. Unlike Wikipedia, no one doubts the validity of the information on Britannica.com.
Last, but not the least, is Answers.com. It is similar to wiseGEEK in the sense that you can post questions on the website and receive clear-cut answers from their contributors.
So, if you are looking to boost your knowledge or need to find information for your homework or a project, these are the five best websites you can use.
