Intro to Web 2.0

The meaning and definition of Web 2.0 could be anything in technical sense.  For me Web 2.0 is the creator of one more world.  Web 2.0 has accorded us one more citizenship as the resident and inhabitant of the ever vibrant virtual world.  The virtual citizenship is so valuable today through which we can make friends, meet friends, share data, promote videos, write blah blah, publish books, publish photo albums, earn online money, shop online, and create a revenue model for any business idea.  What is more interesting is we can achieve all these while relaxing at home.

Because of its attractive flexibility, every one of us have become the addicts of Web after it evolved into Web 2.0.  We might skip a movie, meal or office.  We might go sick for a while.  But we never like to skip the Web 2.0 world.  Enterprises like Unisys, Dell, Walmart, Pepsi and many other biggies have realized the value of Web 2.0 technologies in a more better way than others.  Government of India is working on the deployment of Web 2.0 platform across departments.  Web 2.0 is the business driver, personal brand maker and a dream weaver.

Have a computer with Internet connectivity.  You can start exploring Web 2.0 tools.  The tools and applications are, however, ever changing.  One need to keep abreast with the developments to exploit the true value of Web 2.0.  Go ahead with your Web 2.0 journey through creation of online profile and blogging.

Web 2.0 evolution

Where are we going after Web 2.0?  We already have Enterprise 2.0 where these technologies could be custom developed and integrated into company’s intranet for employee driven Social Media interactions.  Web 2.0 would eventually advanced with more analytical, user friendly, feature rich, self-explanatory, cloud based, collaborative and self-automated model.  The technology would eventually become operable through every mobile phone, virtual devices, and could find its place on restaurant table top.

Time is the biggest challenge for every Web 2.0 user against proliferation of several tools and the evolving need to use such tools.  The future tools should be a one-stop solution to achieve regular but divergent tasks on Web 2.0 platform.

Frankly I look forward for a wrist watch integrated with Web 2.0 platform and operable 24 x 7 x 365.
