Web 2.0

One of the most widely used applications of Web 2.0 involves the following interactive process:
Information sharing – In essence, it involves one-to-one exchanges of data between the sender and receiver. The technologies used include blogs, wikis (it is a website that facilitates the creation and editing of interlinked web pages), RSS (a.k.a. really simple syndication is a web feed format for publishing regularly updated items, such as blogs), tagging (it is a keyword associated with a piece of information), and chat (refers to any kind of communication over the internet).

Some important examples of Web 2.0 include the following:
Communities that are based on the internet
Hosted Services – It is a software system which is designed to support transmisions over a network between one PC and another
Web Applications – It is one that is accessed using a web browser over the internet
Social Networking Sites – They refer to online communities who share interests or activities
Video-Sharing Sites – Refers to video hosting in which part of a video can be uploaded onto a website
Mashups – It can refer to a web page which combines data from at least two external sources to produce a new page
Folksonomies – It is a method of creating and managing tags in order to position content into categories

A website operating on a Web 2.0 basis makes it much easier for users to interact with each other or to alter website content. On the other hand, non-interactive websites allow content only to be viewed passively.

As a result of the introduction of Web 2.0, there has been a huge increase in the popularity of article marketing over the internet. This is facilitated by the viral enhancement of the article activity. In this context, viral marketing refers to the use of social networks to produce increases in the marketing objectives by means of a self-replicating viral process, which can be compared to the spread of a computer virus. Most social networking sites contain the facility to search content by category, such as former school-year pupils), or to connect with friends (usually by means of web pages with appropriate descriptions), as well as a recommendation facility based on trust. The most popular social networking sites will offer a combination of some or all of these facilities, with Facebook and Twitter being the most widely used worldwide. Other important sites include MySpace, Linkedin, Digg, Reddit, Bebo, Multiply.
Facebook is a global social networking website in which users can add friends, send them messages, and update their personal profiles so that their friends are kept in the picture. Users can also join networks which are organised by location, place of work, school, etc.

One of the downsides that has resulted from the popularity of article marketing has been a reduction in the quality of the article submissions in certain categories. This is probably caused by some authors generating articles at the highest possible rate in order to achieve maximum exposure in the minimum time period. In the end, the most effective form of exposure can only be obtained by the submission of top-quality, relevant articles.
