What is Web 2.0?
A perceived second generation of web-based communities and hosted services that aim to facilitate creativity and collaboration between users. The term became popular following the first O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference in 2004.
Building online social networks for communities of people who share interests and activities, or who are interested in exploring the interests and activities of others, and which necessitates the use of software.
Most social network services are primarily web-based and provide a collection of various ways for users to interact, such as chat, messaging, email, video, voice chat, file sharing, blogging, discussion groups.
MySpace is an online community that lets you meet your friends' friends.
