  3. 3. An avatar is an Internet user's representation of himself or herself, whether in the form of a three-dimensional model used in computer games, a two-dimensional icon (picture) used on Internet forums and other communities. The term &quot;avatar&quot; can also refer to the personality connected with the screen name, or handle, of an Internet user. &quot;Avatar (icon).&quot; Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia . 16 Oct 2007, 03:22 UTC.

  4. 4. A blog is a website where entries are written in chronological order and commonly displayed in reverse chronological order. &quot;Blog&quot; can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.  Many blogs provide commentary or news on a particular subject such as food, politics, local news…<OR LIBRARIES!!> A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability for readers to leave comments in an interactive format is an important part of many blogs. &quot;Blog.&quot; Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia . 16 Oct 2007, 15:41 UTC.

  5. 5. The website del.icio.us (pronounced as &quot;delicious&quot;) is a social bookmarking web service for storing, sharing, and discovering web bookmarks. A non-hierarchical keyword categorization system is used on del.icio.us where users can tag each of their bookmarks with a number of freely chosen keywords (cf. folksonomy). A combined view of everyone's bookmarks with a given tag is available; for instance, the URL &quot;http://del.icio.us/tag/wiki&quot; displays all of the most recent links tagged &quot;wiki&quot;. Its collective nature makes it possible to view bookmarks added by similar-minded users. &quot;Del.icio.us.&quot; Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia . 16 Oct 2007, 02:14 UTC.

  6. 6. Flickr is a photo sharing website and web services suite, and an online community platform, which is generally considered an early example of a Web 2.0 application. In addition to being a popular Web site for users to share personal photographs, the service is widely used by bloggers as a photo repository. Its popularity has been fueled by its innovative online community tools that allow photos to be tagged and browsed by folksonomic means. &quot;Flickr.&quot; Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia . 15 Oct 2007, 09:50 UTC.

  8. 8. Folksonomy (also known as collaborative tagging , social classification , social indexing , social tagging , and other names) is the practice and method of collaboratively creating and managing tags to annotate and categorize content. In contrast to traditional subject indexing, metadata is not only generated by experts but also by creators and consumers of the content. Usually, freely chosen keywords are used instead of a controlled vocabulary. &quot;Folksonomy.&quot; Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia . 10 Oct 2007, 19:04 UTC.

  16. 16. Social bookmarking is a way for Internet users to store, organize, share and search bookmarks of web pages. In a social bookmarking system, users save links to web pages that they want to remember and/or share. These bookmarks are usually public, but depending on the service's features, may be saved privately, shared only with specific people or groups, shared only inside certain networks, or another combination of public and private. The allowed people can usually view these bookmarks chronologically, by category or tags, via a search engine, or even randomly. &quot;Social bookmarking.&quot; Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia . 16 Oct 2007, 23:07 UTC.

  18. 18. A social network service focuses on the building and verifying of 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, and so on. The main types of social networking services are those which contain directories of some categories (such as former classmates), means to connect with friends (usually with self-description pages), and recommender systems linked to trust. Popular methods now combine many of these, with MySpace, Bebo and Facebook being the mostly widely used in 2007. &quot;Social network service.&quot; Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia . 17 Oct 2007, 03:05 UTC.

  20. 20. Web 2.0 refers to a perceived second generation of web-based communities and hosted services — such as social-networking sites, wikis and folksonomies — which aim to facilitate collaboration and sharing between users. Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to any technical specifications, but to changes in the ways software developers and end-users use the web. &quot;Web 2.0.&quot; Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia . 16 Oct 2007, 22:35 UTC.
