Everipedia (ev-ree-pee-dee-a) is a crowdsourced internet encyclopedia and knowledge base. Unlike Wikipedia, Everipedia allows anyone to create a page about any person, organization, object, or idea that can be accurately cited. Contributors to the site get "IQ" points and celebrities can have Verified Accounts and add to their own pages or topics of expertise. [31]


Everipedia is based out of the Hilgard Apartments in Los Angeles, California[21]



Everipedia was Sam Kazemian and Theodor Forselius's idea in 2014. [31] Everipedia's name is a portmanteau[46] of the English words "everything" and "encyclopedia" - also it sounds like "Wikipedia" which is Everipedia's main inspiration. It also starts with "e" as in electronic (Internet), adds "veri" as in verify and appends "pedia" for "e-verified-encyclopedia" similar to the term email.


In April 2015, Travis Moore joined the Everipedia team as an advisor and co-founder. [2] In May 2015, Mahbod Moghadam, aka "Maboo" of Genius.com infamy, joined Sam and Tedde in their efforts to bring this thug trove of knowledge to fruition. [31] In June 2015, Shree Dhamija joined the Everipedia team. He left in October 2015 to focus on schoolwork at UCLA. In Nov 2015, Kami Parsa, M.D. joined the Everipedia team. Dr. Parsa was brought in to help with the development of Medipedia, the medical informatics of Everipedia. 


In December 2015, Christian Deciga joined Everipedia as a cofounder and as their first iOS developer.  Shortly after, George Beall joined as a cofounder oriented towards marketing, business development, and content strategy.


Navin VethanayagamKonstantine Nikka-Sher PitermanDave LiebowitzAhmed Amaar, and UCLA senior Angel Ordaz joined the Founding Team focused on growth. 



The only requirement for making an Everipedia page is that all information on the page must be supported by links or media. Add links to other web pages or upload files, then cite them in the article.


New users don't have full editing privileges. Once you build your IQ and reputation, your powers increase.  For more suggestions on improving article and reference link quality - see Everipedia Guidelines - Helpful Suggestions

There is a Facebook group dedicated to all Everipedia editors here. [47]

Social Media and Community

Unlike traditional encyclopedias, Everipedia maintains a robust presence in the social media landscape of the web, engaging with breaking news, novel wiki use-cases, sharing memes, and expanding awareness of the Everipedia mission. Everipedia maintains an extremely active and public Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/832060766909870/ and highly encourages all new contributors to join and introduce themselves there. 


"Link Search": One cool feature of the site: when you put a URL in the search box, it tells you if it's listed on any Everipedia page. This is useful if you have somebody's Instagram and want to find their Facebook[2]


Comments/Voting: You can comment and vote on the reference links on a page. Accurate and reliable sources should be upvoted and inaccurate and dubious sources should be downvoted. You can also simply discuss the page content in the discussion section. [31]


Structured Data: Everipedia's pages are highly structured for meta data and are organized in a graph relational manner.[✔] A future API release will allow querying Everipedia content by property attributes.[✔] You can use the Google Rich Data Testing Tool (https://search.google.com/structured-data/testing-tool) to see the type of meta data stored in an Everipedia page.



Did you know that human knowledge is - along several important metrics - roughly doubling every year and accelerating? [43] Reference Knowledge Growth .  Help Everipedia let others share in that knowledge, all while being part of the human knowledge-base expansion quest.  And don't forget to search on Everipedia.  Everipedia may already have information you can use; remember to cross reference back to Everipedia pages with an "@" internal link wherever possible.


If you can write about a topic, accurately, comprehensively and in an unbiased manner, you have also mastered that topic.  Give your topic the same care, conscientious effort and consideration you would as for a term paper, thesis or research report.  Feel free to work online in teams, collaborate and compare notes, as appropriate.  You might even get some unexpected help, again, adding to your knowledge base and human progress in general.  As  Thomas Edison once stated, "Genius is one percent inspiration and 99 percent perspiration."  [44]


 In September 2016, Everipedia got a Wikipedia page. [52] On October 11, 2016, the page got deleted. In a statement claiming how it failed to meet their General Notability Guidelines, one of their users explained, "[...] The news refs are PR-blog interviews or Crunchbase-style database entries; no one has independently covered or referenced Everipedia itself. As funny as Everipedia is, this article is (at the very least) WP:TOOSOON."[54]
