Updates to Wikipedia

Johanna Janhonen is a Wikipedian and a Wikimedian who has been editing and creating Wikipedia articles on behalf of her customers since 2010. She is one of the the rare paid Wikipedians with a white hat (= meaning she is following the Wikipedia rules about COI editing.)

William Beutler of Beutler Ink and Johanna Janhonen of Hidden treasure were visiting Disambiguation podacast on August 2020. The hosts, Stephen Harrison & Omer Benjakob, were wondering if paid Wikipedia editing can be ethical too.

Johanna’s been updating the Wikipedia articles for customers since 2010. See her profile pages in FinnishSwedish and English and ask if she can help you with your content too either by editing or by teaching you to do it yourself. Anyone can update Wikipedia but if  one is doing it for money (or salary) it needs to be told openly. And even if anyone can update Wikipedia it is nota about all subjects but about remarkable themes.

By August 2020 Johanna had started over 200 new articles in Finnish or English Wikipedia for wide variety of companies and personal brands.

Some of her customers:

Aidon, Basware, Cimcorp, Componenta, DA-Group,
Digia, DNA_Oyj, Efecte, Elematic, Elisa (company),
Ensto, Fennovoima, Fingersoft, Fiskars, Framery,
HappyOrNot, Honkarakenne, Innofactor, Kemira,
Kemppi, Konecranes, Kotipizza Group, Molok (company),
Neste, Novita (company), Olvi, Orthex, Outotec,
Raute (company), Solar Foods, Stora Enso,
Suominen Corporation, Taura Stinson, Valmet,
Varma Mutual Pension Insurance Company, and Zibby Owens .

Johanna Janhonen is also a part of Wikimedia movement – she was a board member of Wikimedia Suomi ry in 2014-2016 and has also been part of global Wikimedia activities e.g. as a Wikimania 2019 social media team leader volunteer.
