Web 2.0 Key Points

1. Use the Web as a Platform, also called software as a service (SaaS)

give people something to build on top of (flexibility)

eg: Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, etc

3. Control over unique, "hard to recreate" data sources that get richer as more people use them

eg: Wikipedia, NavTeq's satellite data, etc

5. Harnessing collective intelligence

Trusting users as co-developers (as in beta testing)

eg: Gmail is still in beta mode since 2004

most of the Internet's content is created by us, the users.

eg: Social Bookmarking like Delicious or Reddit, or blogs like the one you're reading right now!

7. Leveraging the long tail through customer self-service

eg: Google Adwords and Facebook advertising allow anyone with whatever amount of money in pocket to invest and advertise

2. Software beyond the level of a single device

eg: mobile phone, smart phone, PDAs, IPTVs, etc

4. Lightweight user interfaces, development models, AND business models

eg: Twitter - 90% of Twitter's traffic is through their API

6. Rich user experience

more interactive designs, using AJAX, Javascript, CSS, and all the new Web development techniques to provide a smoother user experience

eg: Facebook's and Google's while typing search.
