Users, money shifting to participatory ‘Web 2.0’
L.A. Lorek, San Antonio News-Express
The new breed of Internet companies and online services revolve around people.
The Pew report points to Photobucket, a socially integrated photo service that requires users to upload, share and tag their photos as an example of a Web 2.0 company. It labels Kodakgallery, a traditional online photo site, as a Web 1.0 company. It also calls Wikipedia, an interactive encyclopedia, a Web 2.0 company, compared to Encarta Encyclopedia, another Web 1.0 company. The Web 2.0 companies are growing online traffic much more quickly than the traditional companies, according to the report.
