What Is Wikipedia

Wikipedia is a multilingual online encyclopedia with exclusively free content and is based on open collaboration. In other words, anyone can add to or edit articles however they like. Not only can anyone edit, editing is encouraged. As a result, Wikipedia is a dynamic work that is always growing, always changing, and may not always be entirely accurate.
