  • Web 2.0 applications• Web 2.0 is a concept that takes the network as a  platform for information sharing, interoperability,  user-centered design,[1]and collaboration on the  World Wide Web. A Web 2.0 site allows users to  interact and collaborate with each other in a social media dialogue as creators (prosumers) of  user-generated content in a virtual community, in  contrast to websites where users (consumers) are  limited to the passive viewing of content that was  created for them. Examples of Web 2.0 include  social networking sites, blogs, wikis, video sharing  sites, hosted services, web applications, mashups  and folksonomies.
