Who are the people you want to introduce Wikipedia to?
Try to be as specific as possible about this group.
People who are not aware of the importance and depth of a medium like Wiki
In what languages do they search for information, online or otherwise?
In what ways does this group communicate with each other?
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.
Facebook, SMS, Whatsapp, Tinder, Instagram, Gmail, Google Chat etc
What are some reasons this group would use Wikipedia? How would they benefit from it, or what would they find useful?
Think about what they would be interested in reading and learning about; does Wikipedia provide better access to information this group cares about?
The fuel of life is 'Knowledge' and Wikipedia is a raw fossil fuel from which Knowledge is trapped in original form. Therefore to live a successful life one would require Wikipedia. I have been learning through Wikipedia for the last 15 years or so! and I am just 26 today. Thank You.
