The following information relates to specific areas of Next Web World.

Web 2.0:
The term Web 2.0, or "Web Two", is considered to refer to the social interactive nature of the world wide web.

The phrase emerged and gained acceptance around 2005, but it's true meaning probably wasn't completely understood until the advent of highly popular social networking sites.

Video and picture sharing is also another typical example of what may be considered as a Web 2.0 concept.

Web 2.0 was also thought to mean to encompass an interactive web through actions such as commenting on news stories and video sharing sites.

Other forms of Web2.0 are blogs, forums and wikis, just about any site that has interaction like this are generally put into the mix of Web2.0 concepts.

From a style point a view, Web 2.0 graphics generally can include rounded edges and gradient colors amongst others, but have evolved over the years.


Social Networking:
Social networking (sites) allows users to interact with others, at a personal level.  They allow users to share parts of their lives, thoughts and other information with visitors.

Facebook, MySpace and Twitter are typical examples of such sites, but there are many others.  Social networking can also include the traditional EMail and instant messaging, as well as chat services. 

The phrase emerged and gained acceptance around 2005 but it's true meaning probably wasn't completely understood until the advent of highly popular social networking sites.

The acceptance of social networking has been high, but it can have it drawbacks in terms of privacy unless users are careful with their information.

Web Information


Cloud Computing:
Cloud computing essentially is computing, with applications and information (data) stored online (in the Cloud).  Applications within the Cloud Computing framework are generally referred to as services, or SaaS (Software as a Service).

This allows users to keep minimal information and setups on their own computers, thus freeing up resources.

One of the main benefits of Cloud Computing is that it can be accessible from many sources for the user.  Hence a user need not rely on their own PC, laptop or whatever, they can access the cloud (web) from other PCs (e.g: at friends places, at places of work etc).

Many see Cloud Computing as becoming more significant in the future, however with a lot of privacy and security issues as well as the potential for some providers to shutdown or change their applications, the future of Cloud Computing is not yet certain.
