Web 2.0

Basically, the Web 2.0 is a new style of using the Internet. Before now, the Internet was like a big library that had a lot of information. However, nowadays it is seen as a new means of communication. It is a place where people can share information. Moreover, the web is based in communities of users where they share information with the help of blogs, wikis and social-networking sites.

In times of the web 1.0 the user only downloaded  finished webs. But now apart from doing that ,they also do personal contents. For that reason we can say that with web 2.0 the user is more active. There are several causes that can explain this involvement of the user with the web: the increasingly number of users, the broadband…So the web 2.0 is not a technology, is an attitude from the users.

 

WordPress is one of the blogs that people use for

sharing information.

 The  man who established this term was Tim O’ Reilly in the year 1993. He wanted the people to know that the content was not text, it was a way of interact between the users. Nevertheless,It was not after the O’ Reilly Media web 2.0 conference in 2004 that the concept became notable. According to Tim O’ Reilly:

                                                 “ Web 2.0 is the business revolution in the computer industry caused by the move to the Internet as a platform, and an attempt to understand the rules for success on that new platform”
