Now a days in seconds, people from different continents can get news or messages. Thanks to the social networks people can get together, share pictures, information and news.
Objectives• - show the latest human creations in the internet• - talk about the six most important creations:• - web 2.0• -blogs• -wikis• -podcast• -social networks• -media uploading sites
Web 2.0• Web 2.0 are not a normal websites,what we mean about normal website (web 1.0) is a webpage that only share information with people and allow them to see pictures but do not interact with the users. Web 2.0 is the name given to the recent development of interactive websites that they are quite different to the traditional ones. They allow us to :• Share information (e.g. notes and photos on Facebook)• Interact (add comments, chat, etc.)• Collaborate on content (e.g. creating pages on Wikipedia)• Create their own content (e.g. videos on YouTube• Web 2.0 is often called the Social Web because of the way that users can interact and share. Its also been called the Read-Write Web because much of the content is now written by users (theyre not just reading)
Blogs• A blog is a website where anyone but mostly writers,writes about a topic.• Blogs can be personal (someone writing about their own life, or their personal views), based on an interest (e.g. football), or some businesses also use blogs to write about new products, etc.• A blog allows someone to be a writer and publisher on the Web with very little effort or cost. A blog can be setup with just a few clicks, whereas a few years ago youd need a lot of technical knowledge to create your own website. Many blogs have systems that allow readers to leave comments and begin discussions connected with the blog posts.• Blogging (the act of writing a blog) has become very popular over the past decade or so (there are well over 200 million unique blogs).
• Blogs allow people to publish their views and opinions very easily, without anyone else checking what they are writing. For this reason, it is very important that you do not take the viewpoints expressed on blogs as facts - they are just one persons opinion and maybe factually very wrong.
Wikis• Wiki is a website that allows users to collaborate (work together) to create the content. The pages of a wiki can be edited by everyone (or those who have the password) so that different people can add to the page, edit things, fix errors, etc. Because many people can edit pages on a wiki, you have to be aware that the information you read may not be entirely accurate - sometimes people edit pages and write things that are wrong. Usually the errors are noticed and fixed by other wiki users, but not always.
Media uploading sites• There are many websites that allow users to create, upload and share their own media such as photos, music or video. Usually other users can rate or comment on the media that is uploaded leading to these sites often being referred to as Social Media sites. All media upload sites have rules about the type of media that you can upload - you have to either own the copyright to the image / music / video yourself, or have permission from the copyright owner.
Podcast• A podcast is a type of digital media consisting of an episodic series of files (either audio or video) subscribed to and downloaded through web syndication.• A list of all the audio or video files currently associated with a given series is maintained centrally on the distributors server as a web feed, and the listener or viewer employs special client application software known as a podcatcher that can access this web feed, check it for updates, and download any new files in the series.
Social Networks• A social network website is a site that allows user to connect with other users who are friends / relatives, or who share similar interests. Connected users can then share information / pictures / files with each other, send messages, chat, etc.
Conclusion• All the things above had been helping human being to be connected with each other, to be part of someone elses life, to express themselves to the world. All because of the blogs, media uploading sites, wikis, web 2.0, social network, people can be part of the internet and made their own attribution to it. It may be in the lifes of someone they know or to the entire world. This is the new way of communicating our feelings into the world upon us.
