Web 2.0

For my Public Relations class we are working on a presentation and chose to do it essentially on Web 2.0. While looking for sources outside my book I came across a very helpful blog on O' The blog sums up exactly what Web 2.0 really means.

Here they made a quick chart to refrence what Web 1.0 is and how it has come to be known as Web 2.0

Web 1.0 ----->Web 2.0
DoubleClick --> Google AdSense
Ofoto --> Flickr
Akamai --> BitTorrent --> Napster
Britannica Online --> Wikipedia
personal websites --> blogging
evite --> and EVDB
domain name speculation --> search engine optimization
page views --> cost per click
screen scraping --> web services
publishing --> participation
content management systems --> wikis
directories (taxonomy) --> tagging ("folksonomy")
stickiness --> syndication

The Web has become a platform of new and exciting ways to connect, work, and play. Web 2.0 is now bigger than ever before with blogging, podcasting, YouTube, wikis, Google and more!

How are you feeling about all things Web 2.0 and do you think we are close to moving into Web 3.0????
