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

Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
Everyone who gets to the internet to get some knowledge.

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

Urdu and English

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.
Every social network such as the Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Blogs etc.

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?
Yeah, Wikipedia has a lot of knowledge to share. And it has precisely everything a reader would find.

Project idea[edit]

What language Wikipedia projects will you promote to new readers?[edit]

They already exist

How will you communicate with new readers? Will you be communicating with them online, in-person, or both?[edit]


Describe your idea to engage new readers. How might it be implemented? What will you tell people about Wikipedia?[edit]

Think about the steps that might involved to make this idea happen, and what you might teach people about your experience or others' experiences using Wikipedia.
First, there is an error in question you are asking. Well, I'd share that Wikipedia is a hub of all the information a person would require. Just a detailed study can help them understand a topic fully.

How will you know if this project is successful? What are some outcomes that you can share after the project is completed?[edit]

If you’re not certain about how to respond to this question when starting your idea, you do not need to answer it right now. Campaign participants and Wikimedia Foundation staff can help you consider some options.
The enhanced coverage, search engine standing and the view of the readers.

Do you think you can implement this idea? What support do you need?[edit]

Do you need people with specific skills or resources to complete this idea? Are there any financial needs for this project? Do you need advising from Wikimedia Foundation staff?
Pages on social media networks. Rest I can do myself.
