Abstract: Experience of previous years helps in future planning and development. The profit and popularity of a social network site can only be enhanced if it can test its present state and predict its future state and then make the necessary changes. This idea was executed in this paper on a popular educational site - Wikipedia. The rate of performance of each contributor of an article was calculated by using fuzzy synthetic method. The total number of votes obtained by each contributor was the other parameter. Both the parameters, helped in calculating the rate of contribution towards an article. To check the level of authenticity of the article the total contribution rate value was compared with a standard threshold value. If the value was less than the threshold value then an expert personal was chosen to guide or enhance the standard of the article by using fuzzy multiobjective decision making technique.
