Web
2.0
 “People
can
upload,
as
well
as
download”
–
Stephen
Fry
 
 Web
2.0
is
the
change
of
which
web
software
developers
program
their
sites.
Although
the
 term
suggests
a
new
version
of
the
World
Wide
Web,
is
actually
the
way
in
which
the
 developers
utilize
the
web.

 A
good
example
of
Web
2.0
is
websites
such
as
Flickr.
Flickr
is
a
website
that
specialises
in
 you
being
able
to
upload
and
download
photos
and
recently
the
platform
has
been
 upgraded
so
you
can
upload
and
download
videos.

 Here
is
a
screenshot
of
my
Flickr
account
–
its
shows
the
interface
to
be
easy
to
use.

The
4
Layers
 Their
are
4
different
layers
to
the
Web
2.0
base
 Level
0:
Application
that
works
online
and
offline
just
as
well.
 Leven
1:
Applications
that
can
work
offline
but
benefit
from
working
online
–
for
example
 Apple
iTunes
works
better
online
because
you
can
access
the
Music
Store
etc.
 Level
2:
Applications
work
offline
but
can
gain
more
advantages
online.

 Level
3:
Is
the
most
common.
Only
works
online,
websites
that
are
level
3
are
ones
like
eBay,
 WikiPedia
and
delicious.

 Non
‐
web
applications
like
email,
instant
messaging
clients
fall
outside
the
above
hierarchy.

 Web
2.0
is
considered
an
updated
version
of
the
WWW
 We
are
now
able
to
use
a
variety
of
tools
and
websites
from
the
power
of
Web
2.0
that
 allow
us
to
Socialise
using
Facebook
and
other
similar
websites,
we
are
able
to
perform
web
 blogs
and
Wikis.
Another
example
of
Web
2.0
is
colleges
and
university’s
using
websites
like
 Facebook,
Twitter
and
You
Tube
to
appeal
to
prospective
students
using
powerful
 technologies.
