How To Begin Writing An Article For Wikipedia

When you are ready to write an article for Wikipedia you will need to create an account with them. Choose a username and password to create an account and you can submit your piece directly. If you do not want an account your piece will need to go through Articles for Creation for review and publishing.

There are only certain topics Wikipedia will publish. Subjects must be “worthy of notice”. If a topic is worthy of an encyclopedia, then it is suitable for Wikipedia. If you are unsure about the topic you’ve chosen, you can check with the Wikipedia Teahouse to check whether or not your topic is acceptable.

Once you have selected a topic, check Wikipedia to make sure it has not already been covered. Do a search on Wikipedia to see if your topic exists, if it does you are welcome to practice your writing by making constructive edits to improve it. This is also good way to practice your skills before attempting an article on your own.

Before you start to write gather information on your topic from reliable published sources. You will need to make sure the source is stable and can be referred to for years. Do not use sources if you think they will not stay available for reference for generations to come. Good places to find reliable sources are; the library, internet, books and news archives.

Begin creating your article in your user space, organize your thoughts, ask for advice from others on how it looks and sounds and do some initial editing. Many times once your words are in type you will want to rearrange them or add to them and the user space is the perfect place to get your words set up correctly.

Choose a title for your article that will explain in few words what is contained in it. The title should contain words people will use when searching on your topic and will link them to yours. The title should be precise and contain only the words needed that define your article. When your article is ready you will move it to the “live” portion of Wikipedia.

Unacceptable topics:
* Wikipedia will delete any topics that do meet the guidelines.
*Do not advertise; create personal essays or pages about yourself, your friends or your business.
* Do not copy any articles, use controversial articles or topics that concern only a small local audience.

AMBER Alerts of Facebook News Feed

As part of the mission to help solve the crisis on child abduction, Facebook has now integrated AMBER alerts to the News Feed. The AMBER Alert Program was established by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. 

It covers local media outlets such as radio, television, and on mobile devices like smartphones. The alert is broadcasted to these media outlets once local reports are made about a missing or abducted child. The alerts that will be displayed on the News Feed of Facebook will be dependent on the area where the user is located. According to Sergio Luis de Andrande on this is a great addition to add on the Facebook new feed.

As mentioned, some smartphones are already AMBER Alerts ready. That means, even without Facebook, if there are reports about a missing child nearby, an alert will be sent to the smartphone. The alert will contain necessary information about the incident and the possible ways to help. There will be a link to the AMBER website where information can submitted.

The advantage of using Facebook is that the social network user will have the chance to disseminate the information to inform more people about the incident. The information that are shown through Facebook are more accessible and updated in real-time. The alerts will go out starting today and will be showing on Facebook for desktop, iOS, and android.

This program is expected to significantly reduce the incidents of missing and abducted children and to increase the chances of finding more of the missing children.
