Explain User Participation In The World Of Information In Web 2.0


  • 1 Feb, 2012

    Before web 2.0, the Internet was nothing but just a huge number of HTML pages. These HTML pages contained a lot of information, but the user had no involvement in this world of information. It was a big library containing a vast number of books, where users could get information from, but contribute nothing. So, if there was any real time problem and somebody had a solution to the same, he could not provide it to the world wide web without having a website of his own. Yes, there were no forums, no bloggers and of course, no social networking sites. This was when the concept of web 2.0 came in. Web developers recognized the importance of users and decided to use them to contribute information to this field, hence allowing the amount of information to increase by ten folds. Wiki came into being, and blogger websites became the right place to search for information from specialist users, most importantly the social networking sites. Then there were the RSS feeds that came into scene. All these were just different ways for the user to contribute information. The web became very intelligent. If you had a problem and type it on the Internet Search Engines, you would straight away be directed to the right page where you can find the information or solution. If none of the websites had ever listed the answer to your query, there would be some forum, in which some other user sitting in some other corner of the world would answer your question. Thus, we can safely say that the introduction of web 2.0 had completely changed the face of the Internet. One more important thing, pages were no more designed in mere HTML code. Languages like PHP, Javascript, Ajax, etc., which allowed to handle dynamic pages, had come into picture.
