Without the fast amount of information it makes available, the internet would have been of a limited use. The quest for information is what drives the rapid growth of the internet, the phenomenal growth of companies such as Google and Facebook is largely attributed to these companies ability to provide information through their websites.
But how much of the information we find online is credible? Can we use this information as a reference? Can we take what companies or even people post on their websites or blogs as facts?
This is a very complicated subject; the online community needs to develop clear guidelines on how to treat information obtained online.
