Web 2.0

What is Web 2.0?

Web 2.0 (Web two-point-zero) is currently the most talked about development of the web. In fact, the functionality of Web 2.0 has been around for several years and Web 2.0 software usage has been implemented in business websites for just as long.

Web 2.0 is the perceived second generation of web-based communities and hosted services. But Web 2.0 is not just about technology, but also about the way that software has developed and how ‘end users’ (or customers) use the web.

Web 2.0 is simply the natural evolution of the original world wide web, allowing users to actually do more, which is what you would expect from effective technology. It is the natural development of the next-generation internet.

Synergi Design’s Web 2.0 (Web 2.0 Application Developers) Experience and Expertise

Web 2.0 projects form an essential part of the SynergiDesign website portfolio. We specialise in such complex interactive bespoke websites (Web 2.0 application development), often utilising online video, which can be an important ingredient of Web 2.0, and other modern technologies such as .net2, Ajax, SQL, Server 2005 etc.

Full details of our Web 2.0 development experience and expertise can be found in the following case studies:

Our Web 2.0 development (Web 2.0 application development) experience means that we are the Web 2.0 agency / company of choice.

For example INMYVAULT™ is a bespoke website development that allows all data, including photos, journals and documents to be registered from the user’s date of birth and forward into the future through its unique diary system which is the focal point of the Vault system.

Easy to navigate, and using Web 2.0 technology,the system allows users to create their own profile and create a work history, family tree, upload photos, videos and journals.

Web 2.0 and your Business Website Project

Web 2.0 is an enhancement over ‘read-only’ sites (ie websites where customers can get information but can do little else). Web 2.0 allows customers to interact with your website, such as:

  • Provide information about themselves
  • Contribute to a blog or forum to keep them interested in your company’s products and issues
  • Create their own blog or diary, updating and storing it online
  • Share their views about your company’s products
  • Upload information about products they require
  • Upload their own photos, videos and documents
  • Store their own items securely, PIN-protected
  • Share secure information with nominated guests if desired
  • Purchase items online
  • Social Networking
  • Business Networking

Why does your Business Website need Web 2.0?

A study conducted by management consultants Booz Allen Hamilton found that 41% of UK internet users currently access Web 2.0 sites such as YouTube, MySpace and Facebook, to connect with others in a worldwide online community (social networking) and this figure is set to increase. But Web 2.0 is not just a youth phenomenon: 24% of MySpace users are in the 35-49 age bracket and 25% of Amazon users are over the age of 50.

Web 2.0 means that customers are therefore getting used to a different way of using the web. They will expect to find the same facilities available within the websites of companies with whom they do business or, like INMYVAULT™ customers, rely on Web 2.0 facilities as the basis for what they want to do online.

So customers will expect to be able to use Web 2.0 to:

For example INMYVAULT™ is a bespoke website development that allows users to securely store their most secret thoughts or revelations in a separate inner vault protected by a special PIN number.

Their special records can be shared with nominated guests.

London-based INMYVAULT™ has all the virtues of a social networking site with a purpose. Events and pictures can be shared in real time with chosen recipients, then stored securely for the future. Treasured documents and messages can be transferred instantly to safe keeping.

Some Web 2.0 Points to Consider

  • Your company should institute a strict privacy policy to encourage users
  • Monitored site content and supervise it efficiently
  • Ensure that your company IT security strategy is regularly reviewed and updated
