Web 2.0

Web 2.0

Although the term, ‘Web 2.0′ (2004–present) seems to suggest a new version of the Web, technically, it isn’t. The only difference is the way in which software developers, web designers and end-users use the Web. According to wikipedia:

‘Web 2.0 is commonly associated with web applications that facilitate interactive information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design,[1] and collaboration on the World Wide Web. Examples of Web 2.0 include web-based communities, hosted services, web applications, social-networking sites, video-sharing sites, wikis, blogs, mashups, and folksonomies. A Web 2.0 site allows its users to interact with other users or to change website content, in contrast to non-interactive websites where users are limited to the passive viewing of information that is provided to them.”

The term came into being at Tim O’Reilly’s O’Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference in 2004.[2][3]

Here’s a useful Web 2.0 Design Guide, by web design from scratch, for tips, trends and tricks to design for Web 2.0.
