Web 2.0Here are some key points I get from Thing 6: Web 2.0 from The 20 Things You Must Know About Music Online:

I would imagine that there are very few people who don’t know what Web 2.0 is, or what it means anymore. However, if you don’t know what it’s about, you might be missing the point of having a website entirely.

When the web was still in its inception, it was mostly about viewing documents. Occasionally you might watch something, or buy something, but when you were done with it, you moved on to the next thing. It was called “surfing”.

Web 2.0 is about interacting with other people, creating your own documents, or organizing things. Think of sites likes Facebook or Flickr; they behave more like software than they do like static documents.

Web 2.0 is about letting others interact with you and/or your site. A blog is a great example; people can add comments and their thoughts to each post you create. They can ‘like’ it, or ‘tweet’ it, or share it with their friends through some other method. This facet of the internet is growing and changing daily.
