default What is the Social Web?

Post by Admin on Wed Sep 29, 2010 11:22 pm

Social Web is currently used to describe how people socialize or
interact with each other throughout the World Wide Web. Such people are
brought together through a variety of shared interests. There are
different ways in which people want to socialize on the Web today. The
first kind of socializing is typified by "people focus" websites such as
Bebo, Facebook, and Myspace. Such sites promote the person as focus of
social interaction. To do this a profile is constructed by each user. In
many ways the profile is similar to a passport. The Early Days of the Internet and Web 1.0:

the Internet first became a household word, the World Wide Web was very
one-sided with most websites providing static information. From the
mid-1990s to the early 2000s, the Internet remained fairly one-sided
with primary offerings including informational and transactional (online
shopping) websites. The Internet Becomes Social with Web 2.0:

second generation of the Internet came about in the early 2000s and was
called Web 2.0 or the social web. No longer were people satisfied being
talked at. Instead, they wanted to join the conversation and have a say
in the World Wide Web. The evolution of the social web began with
user-generated content. Personal websites, forums and online chats
became just a few of the standard features of Web 2.0 and made way for
blogs, social networking, social bookmarking and more. Popular Tools of the Social Web:

  • Blogs
  • Social bookmarking: Digg, StumbleUpon, Reddit, etc.
  • Social networking: MySpace, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.
  • Groups: Google, Yahoo, etc.
  • File sharing: YouTube, Napster, etc.
  • Wikis: Wikipedia, Google's Knol
  • Virtual worlds: SecondLife
  • Instant messaging
  • Online chat
  • Forums Blogging and the Social Web:

    is an integral part of the social web. A blog's success relies heavily
    on its community of readers. That community is typically built through
    online networking and promotion through the various tools of the social
    web. From bookmarking important posts to participating in relevant
    forums, a blogger's online activities within the social web can make or
    break a blog's success.
