Web 2.0

 

Web 2.0 is the term given to describe a second generation of the World Wide Web that is focused on the ability for people to collaborate and share information online. Web 2.0 refers to websites and applications that facilitate participatory information sharing,  interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web.

A Web 2.0 site allows users to interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue in contrast to websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of content that was created for them.

Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites such as Facebook, blogs like this site, wikis, and video sharing sites such as YouTube.
