  • Is Yahoo Answers more reliable than Wikipedia?


Answer #1 | 22/11 2013 08:53
When people are unsure of something, they generally cite Wikipedia anyway. Yahoo! Answers is based on people's expertise, knowledge and opinion. If you're researching something, Wikipedia has the answer. If something on Wikipedia doesn't make sense, that's what we tend to be here for.

It depends on what your questions are. People edit Wikipedia everyday and write stupid things. On yahoo answers, if people answer your question they try their best.

While wikipedia seems unreliable, administrators catch most unauthorized changes quickly. Yahoo answers, on the other hand, can be incredibly unreliable. While it does have serious responses, many respond with a lie, a joke, or with a rude comment.
