I’ll admit it. I’m a Wikiphobe. I know of some errors on wiki pages, but I’m afraid of the concequences of fixing them.
I used to tell brands they don’t control their message, and then magically a Wikipedia entry appears about me. Then I realized I don’t have full control of my own brand. But everyone likes the smell of their own brand.
Dare I fix them, or will someone get mad? Does this have to be as complicated as assembling a piece of Ikea furniture?
Will someone simplify the process for marketers and lay people? I use Wikipedia because I believe it has social forces that keep it balanced, and because it ranks high on Google. But I can’t pretend to know the underground pipes that lay beneath the Magic Kingdom. The one where Mickey walks around headless.
There are so many layers and priveleges and politics and unwritten and written rules. What’s a girl to do?
