Did You Ever Contribute To Wikipedia? [MakeUseOf Poll]

Ads by Google

Last week we asked you how many friends you have on Google+. Aside from giving us an insight into how many of you actually use Google+, the poll also turned into a discussion about the recent switch to Google+ comment on YouTube, which forced many people to start using Google+.

We also wanted to compare the results to a similar poll about Facebook, but since Google+ attracted only about half the voters, it’s hard to get a clear picture.

Out of 267 votes in total, 4.5% have 201-300 friends on Google+, another 4.5% have 301-500 friends on Google+, 7.5% have 51-100 friends, 9% have 101-200 friends, 11% have 20-50 friends, 12% have over 500 friends, 19.5% have 0 friends on Google+, and 32% of the voters have less than 20 friends on Google+.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

While the majority of the voters have no friends or less than 20, quite a few people have over 200 friends too. Who said Google+ was dead?

Don’t forget to check out last week’s best comment by Robert M who shares his opinion on why people don’t use Google+ and why they should. He wins a free MakeUseOf t-shirt!

Wikipedia launched nearly 13 years ago, and today it’s hard to imagine our lives without it. Everyone uses Wikipedia for something, be it to find out a tidbit of information or write a thesis; but not nearly as many people write on Wikipedia. And not because they can’t — after all, everyone can write on Wikipedia. Trying to keep the information as accurate as possible, Wikipedia’s become harder and harder to edit easily, and still, many people do it. Are you a regular Wikipedia contributor? Did you ever edit an article? Or do you just use it to read? Let’s find out.

What makes you like or dislike editing articles on Wikipedia? Did you use to like it but not anymore? Were you never attracted to it at all? Share your thoughts below!
