Web 1.0 vs. Web 2.0

What is ‘web 2.0’? Web 2.0 is a conversation and interacting tool among peers. The earlier website, web 1.0, used HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) format was designed to define the structure of a web document. Unlikely, web 2.0 does not define the form. It defines the content through an xml( Extensible Markup Language) format. Web 2.0 is more so like a blog rather than homepage. Through web 2.0 people may change the structure of the website easily and exchange data. It is like a conversation rather than lecture.

Wikipedia is one of the most common web 2.0 based website. It is easily used to exchange information through Wikipedia and people can actually alter and modify the website by xml format. Although it is good to share people’s idea, we still need to maintain a critical perspective when we search and gather information through Wikipedia since it is not a professional writing and information base.
