These online services are typically dependent on user-generated information, where a user can input information about a person or group of people to one or more databases. However, these records are susceptible to containing incorrect information or transcription errors, and it is difficult to locate these inaccurate records and to make corrections even if they are found. This is problematic because it can cause other users to find false leads and potentially add further inaccurate records to the databases.
