What is Web 2.0?

Web 2.0 is the term used to describe the second generation of the World Wide Web which focuses on providing the ability for people to collaborate and share information online. Basically, Web 2.0 refers to the transition from static HTML Web pages to a more dynamic Web that is organized and based on serving Web applications to users. Additional improved functionalities of Web 2.0 include open communication with an emphasis on Web-based communities of users, and more open sharing of information.

Over time, the term 'Web 2.0' has become more commonly used by the field of marketing than by the field of computer-science. Blogs, wikis, and Web services are all components of Web 2.0.

Web 2.0 was previously used as a synonym for the Semantic Web, but while the two are similar, they do not share precisely the same meaning.
