what is web 2.0The buzzword Web 2.0 is thrown around a lot. Is there a Web 3.0? It depends on who you talk to. Let me explain.

Throughout the years that the internet has been up and running there have been a number of electronic and technical advancements that have helped to change the shape of the internet, and the way we use it to communicate. When the internet first became popular, the only way to communicate with other web users was through e-mail or live text chat services. With the introduction of Web 2.0, this changed completely.

What does Web 2.0 mean?

Web 2.0 is a term associated with websites and applications that allow for participatory information sharing and collaboration through web pages. The introduction of this concept is what allows user-generated content (UGC) to appear on a website or virtual community. Web 2.0 is what made the current face of the internet possible.

Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, YouTube interactive blogs, comment sharing, and live feedback submission; all of these things would not be possible without the introduction of Web 2.0.

This advancement is the basic idea used to create social networking communities and allows users to interact with each other by posting comments, status updates, message board forum postings – along with every other example you can think of regarding web page-based user interaction.

This term “Web 2.0” is often closely associated with Tim O’Reilly because of the conference he held in 2004 – the O’Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference. At this conference, participants discussed the implications of introducing Web 2.0 and the possibilities it presents. Additionally, they made it clear that Web 2.0 is not significant of new technology, but rather represents a change in the way software developers and users view the web as a communication tool.

The introduction of Web 2.0 has allowed the internet to turn into the ultimate source of communication potential that it is today. The web was designed to be a collaborative medium where people from all over the world could meet to read, write, and share ideas. With new opportunities to share information being introduced almost daily, that is exactly what it has become.
