More often than not, Wikipedia is the starting place of many research paper, term paper and white paper writers. Not only do students benefit from Wikipedia but also market researchers, stock analysts and other professionals. However, Wikipedia has a dark side.

“Wikipedia can easily become a trap,” said Oliver Thompson, media relations consultant for eReviewGuide.com, the internet’s leading reference site for technology software and a wide range of other specialized information. “If used improperly, Wikipedia can get you expelled for plagiarism, can torpedo your term paper grade, can cause professional embarrassment and all sorts of headaches. People need to use Wikipedia with proper tools.” Users of Wikipedia fall into two camps. Readers and editors. Readers use Wikipedia to research information, editors use Wikipedia to create pages. Editors may be driven by the desire to share information or to brand a product, to champion a cause or to raise awareness. “Regardless of whether you are a user or an editor, using eReviewGuide.com’s how to use Wikipedia
