What is Web 2.0? – Part I


Assalamu alaykum.

Everyone these days may have been stumbling upon the term called Web 2.0 for the past few years and undoubtedly not everyone knows what Web 2.0 means, I guess.  Today’s post I dedicated to clarifying this term, inshallah.

According to the Wikipedia, the term Web 2.0 describes the changing tendency  in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design and web development that aim to boost and enhance creativity, communications, secure information sharing, collaboration and functionality of the web.

The mind map pictured above (constructed by Markus Angermeier on November 11, 2005) sums up some of the themes of Web 2.0, with example-sites and services attached.

The term Web 2.0 became more popular and famous after O’Reilly Media held a conference in 2004. A brainstorming session on that conference  between O’Reilly and MediaLive International has led to the beginning of the Web 2.0 concept.

Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the Internet as a platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform.
Tim O’Reilly

Although you can think of  the Web 2.0 as a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not assume any upgrade or update to any technical specifications. Rather it refers to changes in the ways web designers, software and web developers as well as end-users use the Web.
