Web 2.0

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009 by | Filed Under: Using The Internet

Web 2.0

So, tell me, have you heard about Web 2.0? It’s a term you see applied to a lot of Web sites on the Internet these days, but today, I’m going to go a little more in depth about its meaning. Web 2.0 describes the changing trend in the use of the World Wide Web technology and Web design that aims to enhance creativity, communications, secure information sharing, collaboration and functionality of the Web. Those Web 2.0 concepts have led to the development of Web communities, social networking sites (MySpace and Facebook), video sharing sites (YouTube), wikis (Wikipedia) and blogs (Blogger). Wow! You probably use Web 2.0 Web sites more than you thought, am I right? Well, let’s learn even more about it!

A Web 2.0 Web site doesn’t have any technical specifications. It refers to the revolution of using the Internet as a platform. That is, using a Web site to perform a task instead of a program on an operating system. The 2.0 refers to a rebirth after the end of the 2001 dot com bubble, which I’m sure you heard about in one way or another.

In addition to the popular ones listed above, we’ve covered many Web 2.0 Web sites in the WorldStart newsletter in the past. Just to name a few, Rollyo, Passpack, Project Playlist, Remember the Milk and RSSFWD. If you’re interested in learning more about Web 2.0, this link has a complete directory of 2.0 Web sites. Check it out!
