Web 2.0 applications redefined the use of the Internet.  The use of Web 2.0 applications enhanced the capability of the Internet to deliver a highly interactive and user focused content.  With Web 2.0, the online world became a participatory platform harnessing the individual experiences of ordinary users to enrich the content. 

Web 2.0 applications are not new technology innovations.  When referring to Web 2.0, it is easy to think that a new set of software or design platforms have been developed to supplant the current web technologies.  This is not the case however as the technologies that created the original web applications are also the tools being used to develop Web 2.0.

In effect, Web 2.0 and all the applications associated with it do not recreate technology.  It created a new paradigm to view, use, and share the web.  In other words, Web 2.0 applications reoriented the web to make it a community of users actively sharing and creating content that benefits everyone.  This is a qualitative leap from the static web pages of old where the Internet served as a platform to provide non-linear information.  Although this is still being applied today and had its own benefits, the introduction of Web 2.0 applications could literally engage the user in further improving online content.

Examples of Web 2.0 applications are blogs which are significantly different from personal web pages.  Through the use of blogs, authors can collaborate with readers and readers can actively participate in the development of the blog page.
