I confess I googled my first name "shashi". I consider myself privileged that I am result number 3 after Shashi Tharoor ( author and UN Diplomat) and Shashi Kapoor ( A well known Bollywood actor). The two top results were Wikipedia pages. My curiosity was aroused. Who creates these pages? Can the person create the page themselves? So I asked this question on Twitter.
IS it a good idea to start a wikipedia page for yourself ? No business reason but just in case someone searches for you? Advice?
These were the replies:
I guess I will be giving up any thoughts of creating a wikipedia page for myself. Do you know anyone who has a wikipedia page? are you yourself on wikipedia?
Would love to hear from you, please comment here.
