Audience[edit]

Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?[edit]

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
People in 2018

In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?[edit]

In Brazil, in their own language, since most people can't understand english at all

In what ways does this group communicate with each other?[edit]

This can include services and apps in social media, mailing lists, physical spaces like conferences or lectures, or at specific institutions like at a library.
I'm not sure

What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?[edit]

Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
They are seeking a friendly space. However, Wikipedia looks very distant. We must somehow show the humans behind all the work. Wikipedia is distant and unfriendly.
