Sunil Butolia is very creative since his childhood and has special interests in the internet. He was attracted to Google's Knowledge Panel (also known as Knowledge Graph), he wished to have his own Knowledge panel. In 2018 finally, he developed his own knowledge panel and this process taught him many interesting things that are required to have a knowledge panel up ie: Schema Markup, Microdata, and Structured Data.
Wikidata is a fast and powerful database that Google uses to show the knowledge panel on the search results page. Unfortunately, Wikidata is not for everyone, because it is created to provide structured data to its sister project Wikipedia and Wikipedia accepts new pages only for notable people.
Sunil Butolia has created Wikipedia articles for politicians and sportspersons from his Khatik community to Technically support them. He felt the requirement for a Wikipedia alternative and in 2019, he decided to create his own Wiki website where biographical articles can be created to support talented artists, actors, and influencers.
He developed FAMEPedia on 18th July 2019. In starting, Famepedia was generating only basic hCard Metadata and it needs to be upgraded. On 16th October 2020, Sunil Butolia has successfully implemented fully customisable Schema Markups into FAMEPedia and made the platform powerful as Wikidata. Now all types of Schema Markups can be added to FAMEPedia as per the requirements of the user.
Ugo Chima Joseph is a joint-head with Sunil Butolia since April 6, 2021. He has made restructuring and amendments to FAMEPedia. He Introduced features like the Article wizard, Noticeboards, Wikilove and other features.
