Hello mylotters! As we can see there are many sites paying people to write articles and/or edit online articles. They are no longer as strict as before. Do you the articles, researches and info we get online are still as credible or reliable as before?

Some of them can be reliable.. But since anyone can just write an article for a website nowadays they may not be as true/reliable as they could be. This is why when you do research you should always stick to reliable websites. If possible you shouldn't get your facts from some random person's blog.

I think there is a lot of good stuff out there, and a lot of bad stuff. This is why we need to be selective and not just buy and believe everything we read, but to also question the source. But sure, you can definitely find reliable info too, out there!

Yes I think articles we find in the internet are still reliable, most of them actually. But there are written articles which are based one others opinion only, so I suggest you have to be keen in searching and identifying articles you need. But in school, resources coming from the internet are often rejected due to reliability issue. Most of the time they prefer books and journal article as our references for our research work, case studies, case analysis and reports.

Yes i do think that some articles are indeed reliable. But again there are some which are just used to attract the people while they have no actual meaning in real life. They just claim to have have done something good or great and they claim something for the same. The worst part is that once an article is printed wrongly the source of that article would never be the same again. It would be an end and no one can start believing that articles again.
