There seems to be a lot of Internet jargon flying around Alumni offices these days. If you’re still a little confused by it all, have no fear, over the coming weeks, the Alumni 2.0 team will be decoding this geeky gobbledygook for you into simple definitions.
Where better to start than the basics…
Web 2.0 is a phrase created in reference to a perceived second generation of web-based communities and services such as social-networking websites like Facebook which facilitate collaboration and sharing between users.
Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to Web technical specifications. So there’s no need to hassle your web editor about compliance issues:-)
