EMPOWERMENT TECHNOLOGIES LESSON 1
• Dynamic refers to web pages that are affected by user input or preference

Features of Web 2.0


• Folksonomy- allows user to categorize and classify information using freely chosen keywords e.g tagging by
Facebook, twitter, use tags that start with the pound sign #, referred to as hashtag
• Rich User Experience- content is dynamic and is responsive to user’s input
• User Participation- The owner of the website is not the only one who is able to put content. Others are able to
place a content of their own by means of comments, reviews, and evaluation e.g lazada.com, amazon.com
• Long Tail- services that are offered on demand rather than on a one-time purchase. This is synonymous to
subscribing to a data plan that charges you for the amount of time you spent in the Internet, or a data plan that
charges you for the amount of bandwidth you used.
• Software as a Service- users will be subscribe to a software only when needed rather than purchasing them e.g
Google docs used to create and edit word processing and spread sheet
• Mass Participation- diverse information sharing through universal web access. Web 2.0’s content is based on
people from various cultures

Web 3.0 and Semantic Web

• The W3C standard encourages web developers to include semantic content in their web pages.
• Semantic web is a component of Web 3.0
• Semantic web provides a common framework that allows data to be shared and reused across application,
enterprise, and community boundaries.
• The aim of web 3.0 is to have is to have machines or servers understand the user’s preferences to be able to deliver
web content specifically targeting the user.
