What iS WEB2.0


Today we all live in a global world where anyone can communicate with anyone in any corner in this world. Have you ever thought what makes communication easier this much. When we think about that technology is the vehicle which has driven the communication process far in an easy way. Internet is the main component that  has helped the technology to do the communication process easily.

Web 2.0 is a topic that everyone is concerning about these days and when talk about the internet web 2.0 comes to our minds normally . Web 2.0 doesn’t only facilitate the communication process but also it helps to share the knowledge and information. In early days people had to go and find the knowledge and information they needed but now the knowledge and information needed will be available in the computer screen in just one or two clicks. Most people are still don’t have a clear picture what this web 2.0 is. Tim O’reilly has written an article on web 2.0 which gives a clear understanding of what exactly this about.  Most of us use web 2.0 tools without knowing that it is a component of web 2.0. Web 2.0 is the next generation of web design and development following Web 1.0 and it gives a wide range of tools. These tools facilitate people to communicate with each other globally and easily, and also provide hosted services and applications where it helps to manage the knowledge and information.  Some of the web 2.0 services and applications that we use frequently are wikis, blogs, social networks such as facebook, my space and also multimedia sharing such as youtube. There are massive amount of applications out there which we may not believe and we have not used many of them. You can have a look and play around with those applications and tools by visiting the following web sitewww.go2web20.net

Most organisations now have been concerning about these web 2.0 applications and tools to be used in their businesses to facilitate the communication between their employees, customers, suppliers and other partners. This movement of web 2.0 tools and technologies is known as enterprise 2.0 and this will be discussed in my next post.
