Posted on:  Sep 26, 2008

Web 2.0 stands for the Second Generation of World wide Web. The phrase Web 2.0 was coined by O'Reilly Media (a publisher of computer literature) in 2004. Previously World Wide Web was a collection of websites but now it is a completed computing platform serving web applications to end users and the main trend is to replace desktop computer applications and put them on the web for users that's why Web 2.0 is going to be source, media and platform for many purposes.

 Currently Web 2.0 includes services such as social networking sites, wikis, many communication tools, folksonomies, online office & productivity applications, etc. Web 2.0 is focusing on collaboration and sharing among users. Web 2.0 also refers to a more organized and categorized content, with more developed web architecture than before. A shift in economic value of the Web, possibly surpassing that of the dot com boom of the late 1990s.
