Facts About Wikipedia
Wikipedia is a good jumping off point when it comes to research. While not always the most reliable source (you have to do some additional research), it’s a great way to learn about new topics. Wikipedia also happens to be one of the most popular websites on the planet. Want to know more about Wikipedia? Here are some interesting stats.
1. Wikipedia does not have any ads. That clean white space that you see now is the same clean white space that’s been there since the site began. Every year, you may see a small pledge request, but that’s about it. Sit back and enjoy the ad-free space!
2. Wikipedia is manned by just 35 employees. While a lot of people contribute to the site, there are only thirty-five people that actually work for the site. That’s kind of amazing, right?
3. Wikipedia is based in San Francisco, but that’s not where the company’s servers are!
4. Wikipedia’s servers are located in Florida.
5. There are more than 22 million Wikipedia articles! That’s a whole lot of knowledge!

8. Articles on the Wikipedia site are available in more than 200 different languages!
9. English is the most popular Wikipedia language, with more than three million articles.
