    Conducting a research simply means searching for facts, which is not easy due to the overwhelming and confusing informations. Thus, knowing how to differentiate between “fact”, “fiction”, and “opinion” is significant, and should be considered
    Blogs, personal web sites, wiki sites, movies, and historical novels are common forms of places that promote for opinions and fictions rather than fact.
    Blogs, (any) blogger can use the availability of the internet to publish his own opinion regardless of credibility and objectivity criteria;
    personal web sites, are similar to blogs, in terms that there are created by the public, they could also be created by professionals; however, it is difficult to differentiate between them in regard to specific topic;
    wiki sites, they could be used to an “informative” limit; they provide the researcher with reasonable base of informations that are sufficient enough to track a given topic; usually subject to the discretion and directive of the instructor;
    movies, most often created for entertainment; hence, must not be used as reliable research sources;
    historical novels, are much like movies; therefore mustn’t be used as reliable history research.

    During our browsing via Google to identify examples for good and bad sources, we have been captivated by a presentation in an easy attractive form under the famous website,Prezi: Sources: The Good, the Bad, the Eh…by Rebecca Richardson on 2 February 2015.
    In context of finding credible sources for research, dhmo.org is identified by Prezi as an example of bad sources;
