The internet has become the largest resource where people look for information on a range of subjects. Internet information has replaced all other information sources because it is easy to access it offers up to date information and has information on an immense range of diverse subjects. The question often arises whether internet information is really authentic information. The internet is an information resource platform that is available to all. Anyone can post internet information on any subject on the internet. The internet allows posting of internet information without censorship and this is why internet information is not always regarded as authentic. The quality of internet information is often questionable and regarded as adequate for viewers who scan the internet for an overview of a particular subject. General internet information is an instant information resource for those requiring a brief introduction to details of a subject rather than an information resource for scholars. The internet serves as an important information resource for commerce and marketing. The internet information available about products and services available for potential customers is authentic because the internet is a large marketplace where businesses of all sizes find customers among internet visitors. Internet viewers looking for scholarly internet information will also find the internet a valuable resource. Special search engines like Google Scholar list research papers abstracts and articles by experts on an array of subjects as reference tools for students and scholars. Websites of educational institutions organizations and government departments with domain names like edu, org and gov have authentic information for students and scholars who are looking for serious internet information. Other websites that offer internet information carry relevant disclaimers as required by law to ensure that readers and visitors are not misguided by the internet information available on websites. The World Wide Web consortium has developed a technological standard called PICS or Platform for Internet Standard Selection with the primary purpose of protecting children from viewing offensive content. This technical standard also evaluates the quality of internet information uploaded on the internet. Thus there are many ways by which internet viewers can look for and access authentic internet information despite the maze of information both authentic and otherwise available on the internet.
