Web 2.0 tools are very useful in today’s use of the internet. They have change the way we now communicate to other people as well as made our lives much easier when using different services. Web 2.0 tools have really changed the way I use the computer nowadays. I don’t use Facebook much, but when I do use it, I feel like theres a lot of communication and you are hearing the latest updates. The best thing about these social networks is you can always catch up with people and always be updated.

Social networks aren’t the only thing that have made the web a much easier service but also wikis such as wikipedia make researching for topics much easier. There is so much information, and it is a great way that people can interact and add bits of information to different topics. Wikipedia is also a really great source on telling me the latest gossip about celebrities and other interests.

This is the first time in using the web 2.0 technology of blogs. However, being the first time, I feel that its another great tool which you can interact with other people and share ideas and comment about different topics. I’m not a big fan of writing. However, I found blogging quite a good experience.

Tagging is also another great tool of Web 2.0. Tagging can expand on what you are looking for, such as articles or even blogs can have tags incorporated in them, so that way you can find more information on that topic at the time when only looking at one source. Tagging is also done in photos as well. This can give you new friends, as well as expand your communication even more.

I have just recent signed up with twitter. I feel twitter would be the better tool for sharing blog posts. What I have found of twitter so far is that it very much similar to Facebook and Myspace and everything. However, I feel that posting updates on twitter would be better for the blog. The layout of twitter firstly is set out so that it would suit the blog posting much better. I feel twitter is another great site which I’ll keep as a personal social network. It will be like a second Facebook. Twitter is also different by the way when adding a friend, instead of adding, you re actually following his/her stream of updates. Twitter is a great new tool for me, and I must keep exploring the site to et better at using it.

    I believe Web 2.0 tool has changed the way I use computer too. People like to be in touch with their friends and family and it is natual progression for them to use social networks to do that. Nowadays, people dont need to call or be close to someone to know about their life or to know what is going on with them. Thank to the Web 2.0 that make the communication easier for everyone.
    Social network is just one famous thing of Web 2.0 but it is not the only one!……

    Good point in your blog!…..

  2. I was just wondering what you thought the potential downsides to sharing a lot of personal information online are. I don’t mean financial information or anything like that. What would happen in the future if I changed my opinions, can people always see what I have posted? And is this a good thing for society?

    Hi Alex,
    Good introduction for your interest in web 2.0 tools. I suggest that just change the title of your post to some thing like “my motivation to Enterprise 2.0”. You second goal should be writing on one of the many aspects of Entreprise 2.0 Writing about Enterprise 2.0 history can be a good start for you.
    Cheers, Sirous

    Facebook among other sites has definitely changed the way I use computers and how I keep in touch with friends. Good post man, keep it up.

  5. Yeah I must agree with what you say about twitter. I mean for me Facebook seems to do more for me and I can’t see myself ever “tweeting” anything useful. But I do like your idea about using it to let people know about new blog posts, but then again don’t RSS feeds do this anyway? Perhaps you could link your blog RSS feed with twitter so it automatically alerts your followers of new blog posts.

      Very very true, I think linking twitter with RSS would actually really be a good idea, I’ll have to figure out how to do that. Thanks for the comment. Facebook is a great tool.
