SEARCH Profile Now on WikipediaBack See more recent articles
SEARCH is pleased to announce that it now has a corporate profile on Wikipedia, the online collaborative encyclopedia, at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/
Since it was created in 2001, Wikipedia has grown to become one of the largest reference web sites, with nearly 78 million visitors monthly as of January 2010, 16 million articles, 91,000 contributors and more than 270 languages. There are currently more than 3.3 million articles in English.
"Posting a profile on Wikipedia is part of SEARCH's effort to reach a wider audience with information on its mission, programs, Membership, and partnerships," noted Deputy Executive Director Kelly J. Harbitter. "They'll be able to link directly to our web site to learn more details. In the near future, we plan to utilize more online methods to reach our constituents, such as a SEARCH 'group' on LinkedIn and an electronic newsletter."
The Wikipedia community has developed many stringent policies and guidelines to improve the encyclopedia. As such, SEARCH had to go through a rigorous review process before being able to post its profile on the site.
