  • Businesses Can&apos;t Hide From 2.0: A Look At 2.0&apos;s Impact Across Industries http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/businesses_cant_hide_from_20.php September 6, 2008 If you&apos;re a business who has been ignoring the Web 2.0 trend and the spread of social media: look out, the tide is shifting and you&apos;re about to be left behind.
