This is information about web2.0 tachnology

28 Oct

Web 2.0 (or Web 2) is the popular term for advanced Internet technology and applications including blogs, wikis, RSS and social bookmarking. The two major components of Web 2.0 are the technological advances enabled by Ajax and other new applications such as RSS and Eclipse and the user empowerment that they support.

The Positives And the negatives of the web 2.0 Technology

There are numerous Web 2.0 tools that are available. As with anything this much variety comes with many positive as well as negative attributes. I will begin with the positive things, Web 2.0 in an improvement for the existing Internet system. It allows users to collaborate and interact with each other. They can post their knowledge as well as their opinions. Blogging, social bookmarking as well as some applications that can be used to present and share information, are just a few of the tools that are available.
With all of the positive come some negative things. Private information can fall into the hands of hackers and criminals easily; too much information or information overload, a lot of time can be wasted using web 2.0 tools. Also, people can become overly dependent on the Internet.

Web 2.0 in itself is an ever-evolving definition of design standards. It places a focus on usability, interface, and readability. Since the era of Web 2.0, design has changed in many ways. Elements like big fonts, introductions, and prominent statements are now ways for websites to stand out.

 

Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing sites such as YouTube, hosted services, web applications, mashups, and folksonomies. According to MSNBC, mobile devices such as the iPad and iPhone are ahead of other social platforms in the workplace, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

In a way, today’s websites deliver more with less. Web 2.0 allows you to design elegant pages that accomplish the sites goals. They guide the visitor’s eye through the use of fewer, well-chosen visual elements. Fewer words say more, and carefully selected images create the desired feel. It’s the designers job to help users find what they want. Although different items on the screen attract the eye, the more there is the more different things there are for visitors to notice and the less likely it is for viewers to notice the important things.

Social Computing is now a thing that most people do on a regular basis. The top 10 Web 2.0 winners, according to Wisdump, include:
MySpace, WordPress, Flickr, YouTube, Revver, MetaCafe, Newsvine, Yahoo, Digg, Skype, and Facebook.

By using Twitter, you are able to connect with an online network of people who share professional interests, allowing users to post short messages as long as 140 characters in length that other users can receive and comment on. Facebook and Twitter in particular have done a great deal to alter the way we communicate and collaborate at home and in business. Often some find that there are so many different social activity channels that they are tired of switching between them all. Services such as Friendfeed make it possible to cut down on the effort of using the social Web.

We’ve made progress with the excitement of mobile devices and progress with Web 2.0 is predicted to go up from here.  Tim Bray, Director of Technologies at Sun Microsystems predicts that “as long as the Internet grows, its primary effect will be to facilitate easier and richer communications between human beings, the infrastructure we use to build that effect is to be invented.”

To have a better understanding what Web 2.0 means, we must first start with the first generation of the web — Web 1.0. When the web was first developed, it was strictly ‘read only‘ meaning all content was static, users could only consume information. In contrast, Web 2.0 is often referred to as ‘read-write web‘ meaning interaction and collaboration exists and thrives with this new version! Users are no longer just consumers, now they can create their own content and interact with others.

There are many fantastic Web 2.0 tools that exist today – most require users to create accounts and many of them are FREE.

A few examples of some Web 2.0 tools: blogs, wikis, voicethread, social bookmarking.

How the technology works

For example – Facebook Facebook allows users to post messages chart to post images. As a Facebook user, you can follow other users’ micro-blogs (or Facebook). Users can also follow your Facebook.
