web 2.0

Refers to the second generation of the Internet in which the web moved beyond a static collection of HTML pages towards a collaborative and interactive environment which promotes participation and harnesses the power of collective intelligence.

Web 2.0 is often known as a user-created web as there are fewer requirements for specialised tools or skills to author online content: its participants can easily become its authors.
