  9. 9. What is Web 2.0: Content Web 1.0 content  One way path, producer to creator  Simple commerce based on commodities Dynamic Content  Changes with your actions  Examples: Google Docs, Google Earth User Generated Content  Social networking, media sharing, wikis  Examples: Facebook, YouTube, Wikipedia  WARNING: Not part of user analysis
