Wikipedia Post




I changed that Jennifer Love Hewitt was born in Juneau, Alaska instead of Waco, Texas. I blatantly wanted to see if I could put up false information on the website. For three days it stayed up there on Wikipedia until finally on the forth day it changed back. This proves that not only do people check the edits, but they also have recorded what was there previous to any change. I found it interesting that it took a couple days for them to catch the mistake however. I wonder if people make false adjustments all the time and it takes time to review them all. Regardless, they found my false information and changed it back. Looks like Andrew Keen was not completely right about how easy it is to change information on the internet!
