Third person

From dKosopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

Writing in third person is a wiki best practice that lets others contribute more easily and to attribute opinions to people not participating. See also neutral point of view.

Unlike first person experience or opinion ("I") and second person instruction ("you"), third person can be easily edited from an objective perspective to include things that other people believe. This is why first and second person are not used in regular journalism except in columns or editorials - a journalist or academic doesn't talk about themselves ideally.
