WEB 2.0

Data Sharing

Web2.0 is referred to as the read-write web. It is essentially a new approach using existing internet technologies. In Web2.0, web users can not only read content but also write, edit, and update content online. It supports collaboration and contributes to collective intelligence, unlike Web1.0. Web2.0, with the evolution of the next generation of web services, shifts the internet onto a platform supporting a new thought process and sharing content through applications like wikis, weblogs, widgets, and mashups.

The Ideas Behind Web 2.0:

  1. Personal Production and User-Generated Content: Focus on everyone contributing useful information through online technologies like wikis and blogs.

  2. The Power of the Crowd: Focus on the reuse of collective information or contributions provided by participants and crowdsourcing.

  3. Epic-Scale Data: Relates to user-contributed data that can be indirectly collected and aggregated in new ways.

  5. Network Effects: Relates to the increased usefulness of a system when more users join.

  6. Openness: Mainly focuses on open access, open-source software, and the use and reuse of free data.

Technologies Behind Web 2.0: Web2.0 still utilizes most of the technologies behind the Internet, such as XHTML standards, style sheets, content syndication, AJAX, and Flash.

Web2.0 technology infrastructure includes:

  1. Content Syndication: RSS, Atom, RDF, and other content syndication formats are used for creating web 2.0 services.
