It has been 20 years since Wikipedia first went live. On January 15, 2021, the first information website went live and since then, has become an indispensable part of everyone's life.
Wikipedia is the biggest website in the world that depends solely on volunteer work and research. Currently, the website has nearly 56 million articles in 309 languages on almost every topic you can think of.
The website was founded by American-British entrepreneur Jimmy Wales. It started in English but within first two months of its launch, the information site had already launched in German and Swedish.
Wikipedia is a non-profit website that relies heavily upon the work of volunteers. And in today's competitive internet world dominated by the likes of Google and Facebook, Wikipedia continues to provide accurate information and no cost whatsoever.
On their 20th birthday, let us all wish Wikipedia a very Happy Birthday and thank them for their immense contribution towards providing people with accurate knowledge and information.
Happy Birthday Wikipedia
