What’s Web 2.0?

If you like surfing the Internet, you probably have heard about Web 2.0

Based on Wikipedia –  Web 2.0, a phrase coined by O’Reilly Media in 2004, refers to a perceived second-generation of Web-based services – such as social networking sites, wikis, communication tools, and folksonomies—that emphasize online collaboration and sharing among users.
