I think I can safely say that most of us, when we have a question these days, do the same thing: we Google it. Everything from “when was Abraham Lincoln born?” to “how much cheese do I have to eat to set the world record?” can all be answered with a simple Google search, and it’s become the knowledge source of choice for many of us today.
But there’s a problem with those answers: why should you believe them? Just because the Internet says it, doesn’t mean it’s true. We’d rather get answers from people we know and trust, and to know the source of the answer, rather than just read it on some 13-year-old’s old Geocities page.
