World of Web 2.0

Web 2.0 has taken the world by storm in the past few years. The concept of Web 2.0 takes the network as platform for information sharing,user-centered design, collaboration and interaction with the World Wide Web. A web 2.0 site allows users to interact with others in a social media dialogue/virtual community. Some examples of Web 2.0 include facebook, wikis, twitter, blogs, rss, social media, web applications and pod-casting. These allow us all to communicate and contribute with freedom via the world wide web.

” Web 2.0 is not a technology but Web 2.0 needs technology so that typical scenarios can become reality..”

 So how can web 2.0 tools assist with my personal productivity?

Web 2.0 tools can help people change their life allows them to connect with their friends whilst also giving them the ability of making friends via social media. .

A web 2.0 application i use very often is Facebook

–  Allows me keep in touch with my friends/ family, where ever they are around the world.

– Facebook is a Web 2.0 service that allows you to interact and share information with anyone.

– Allows me to set up groups for my personal purposes weather it is for work, university or social groups, only
people in the group are able to see each others posts. Whilst keeping your personal information, photos to yourself and those who you are connected to.

Another web 2.0 application i have recently started using is WordPress.

–  WordPress is a Web 2.0 application that allows users to write, publish their own blogs.  I only started using WordPress this semester for Enterprise 2.0. Before that i had a WordPress account, but never really bothered to check it out and consider writing a blog. Personally starting to use WordPress it has allowed me to see that this particular Web 2.0 app can really help one express their personal thoughts they wish to share with the public and online community.

– It allows you to store your personal blogs and edit them when you wish, which is such a convenience and importantly it is easy to use!


A Web 2.0 tool that i signed up for and used for this week was Prezi ! Prezi is a wonderful a brilliant tool that allows users to create presentations, sharing ideas on a virtual canvas. I guess you could say it is a step up and much more advanced tool then Microsoft PowerPoint. Prezi allows users to display and navigate through information within a 2.5D space on the Z-axis. It would be a great tool to do university presentations as it adds a new dimension to your presentations.

  1. Hi there 🙂

    You mentioned personal productivity. In my blog m make a brief point about how a lot of Web2.0 tools can in fact LOWER our productivity in certain aspects of our life (work & studies). A agree that social networking tools do play a big part in personal productivity but what about professional?

    Great blog btw 🙂 If you get the chance you should check mine out at http://face2enterprise.wordpress.com/

    • Hey, what i ment was that it allows us to do things that are personal to us, via facebook or wordpress, these are things that revolve around our personal use. I will check your blog out, thanks for reading! 🙂

  2. Hello Andy.
    I have vote your blog. I like the example you given because i haven’t used this software before (PREZI). That’s let me know how to quickly create presentation slide similar software like power point. I think PREZI is a very powerful web 2.0 tool like our learning phase can also be used in the academic or briefing on the work.

    Cheers 🙂

  3. Hi there, i agree with you that how Facebook and blogs impact on our life. and its not only limit by personal stuff, it also cover for business use by advertisement or even create a homepage for that. therefore, those social 2.0 tools also benefits on companies. i think it will be great if you can introduce some companies interact with 2.0 tools such as Facebook with Nike, or Asus with blogging.:)
    btw, Prezi is a good tool for presentation, i think i will try to use next time when i have presentation.


    • Hi thank you for the comment, it is just fascinating how far social media has come and evolved, people just cannot live without it these days. Let alone it being such a great way to promote yourself or a business. Prezi is a brilliant web 2.0 tool, you should try it! 🙂
