Web 2.0: World Wide Web At Its Peak

The emergence of the Web 2.0 has brought about many question marks in the minds of many. The main question asked is, “Is Web 2.0 a newer version of the Web with up-to-the-minute applications that could be beyond our imagination?”

The answer is no!

The precise definition of Web 2.0 is an evolution in the World Wide Web that serves as the parent program for all users, including software creators, and of course, us. What distinguishes Web 2.0 from Web 1.0 is the communication between the user and the provider that seems more detectable than before.

The relation between the user and the provider is no longer passive. Blogs and forums are the most obvious avenues for interaction between the publishers, Internet surfers and the advertisers and forum webmasters.

A business owner can analyze the marketability of his or her products by communicating with the targeted market, all with the help of Web 2.0. An employee can end up telecommuting, meaning that he or she works from home, reason being that there is already a means of interaction between you and the people in your network, which is those software adopted by Web 2.0.

Web 2.0 is probably the symbolic evidence of the World Wide Web reaching greater heights.

With regards to this article, a good friend of our team, MT has tagged the team the following below. Let us come together and support this movement.

The Long tail theory (2004), by Wired editor Chris Anderson states that Niche players has an edge as niche product sold online enjoys good profit in low volumes as compared to Mass market players (high volume, low profit) as Mass market players are facing mounting price, cost and compettition pressure.

It is all possible because of this level playing field called Internet and it's global reach, 24x7 availability and the power of personalisation/customisation.

The Long tail advantage can be applied to the blogging scene. As mentioned in my previous post, a network of small bloggers united together is bigger than a single superstar site! That's the secret behind Social Networking/ Community sites. The Big Brother companies of the Internet are beginning to realised this. They are starting to acquire these sites.

The point is we have our own niches, i have mine and you have yours. If we combine (linked together), we are a formidable force!

Just imagine, For positive product review! By positive i mean real review! If it is no good, say so! If ABC beverage company come up with a drink, and All 300
(let's say) of us reviewed the product and even if 85% says it is good!
(It will be tremendous positive impact on sales!
Just imagine how much real publicity compared to just advertising! not to mention the saving of advertising dollars!).
Word of mouth and recommendation is MORE powerful! I trust my friends and will most likely buy what they recommend! the reverse is true also.

The remaining 15% can be a positive feedback to the company to improve the product. It sure beats paid survey anytime!!!

Let's imagine again, If we activate this force for good cause, green movement, positive blogging direction like Blogging Etiquettes & Reality Niche This, we can make a difference!

If you are an advertiser or a company or someone that needs help, would you go to a single mega site or a collective linked Bloggers United sites? The answer is clear!

For a start, our bloggers united network currently includes: Nafasg Project heavy traffic (*Your Link Here*)

The creator of Web 2.0 published an article from his presentation on Web 2.0 and he outlined the differences between 1.0 and 2.0.

It was very interesting reading. See here - http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/oreilly/tim/news/2005/09/30/what-is-web-20.html
