  1. 2. <ul><li>Web 2.0 - A term often applied to a perceived ongoing transition of the World Wide Web from a collection of websites to a full-fledged computing platform serving web applications to end users.  It refers to a supposed second-generation of Internet-based services—such as social networking sites, wikis, communication tools, and folksonomies—that emphasize online collaboration and sharing among users.

  2. 3. <ul><li>RSS (rich site summary) - is a simple XML-based system that allows users to subscribe to their favorite websites. Using RSS, webmasters can put their content into a standardized format, which can be viewed and organized through RSS-aware software or automatically conveyed as new content on another website. (2020 systems) </li></ul><ul><li>Social networking - The personal or professional set of relationships between individuals. Social networks represent both a collection of ties between people and the strength of those ties.

  3. 4. <ul><li>Wikis - is a type of Web site that allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change some available content, sometimes without the need for registration. This ease of interaction and operation makes a wiki an effective tool for collaborative authoring. (2020 systems) </li></ul><ul><li>Ajax - is shorthand for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML , is a web development technique for creating interactive web applications. The intent is to make web pages feel more responsive by exchanging small amounts of data with the server behind the scenes, so that the entire web page does not have to be reloaded each time the user makes a change. This is meant to increase the web page's interactivity, speed, and usability. (2020 systems) </li></ul>
