Now a days we see that the Web 2.0 culture is evolving at a very rapid pace and a huge amount of Web 2.0 sites are being launched daily. Still most of us remain oblivious of the real meaning of this term which is coined as Web 2.0. Wikipedia says:
Web 2.0 is a revolutionary view of the Internet and the social and business uses of advanced technologies rather than the technical aspects of those technologies. The core concept of Web 2.0 is: Use Internet as a platform and leverage network effect to harness the collective intelligence in a cost-effective manner
Web 2.0: The Visual Definition
I can very well assume that the web 2.0 description provided by Wikipedia may not have helped new learners understand the true Web 2.0 meaning and concept perhaps because Web 2.0 can not be explained in mere words. The Web 2.0 concept is a whole new generation of ideas and needs to be presented graphically and that is where Web 2.0 Blog helped me in finding a more easy-to-understand Web 2.0 concept that I would like to share with my readers.
Web 2.0 Structure and Communication
The above image was actually made by aYsoon Blog to help its readers understand the structure and communication process of Web 2.0. The image was actually made in french but a little thanks to my photoshop skills I was able to translate it to English so my readers could have a better understanding.
Web 2.0 vs Web 1.0
The image compares Web 2.0 with Web 1.0 and explains how things have changed since the web culture has revolutionized. Webmaster and user interaction no longer depends on direct means of communication rather a whole new system of social interaction has evolved that includes really simple syndication (rss feeds) and also the use of social networking sites.
Do you like the evolving web culture? Do you think that web 2.0 has helped users get more interactive or do you think it is just a propaganda term created to wipe out the old web standards?
