Web 2.0 & Social Software
Robin Dindayal at iUpload writes about the importance of Web 2.0 and social software. In essence the growing recognition of product developers and business people that using web tools allow collaboration with other members of a group and can help form stronger online communities. Robin details a few examples.
Social software is tremendously powerful, sites like eBay and Craigslist.org really demonstrate the power of setting up a website that allows collaboration between many members of a group. That collaboration provides value in the form of information about events, auction items, housing and much more.
Think about your own company and how it might develop a social software website, Blogs are one example, but there is so much more that can be done with social media software.
Wikipedia is perhaps the best example of a website that uses the power of collaboration to build a unique evolving and dynamic website of knowledge on the web. If your company can harness the power of your industry, you can get over the content generation problems many companies have with their websites. Forums are actually an excellent example of a collaboration websites. However even forums require time and management to build into a successful website.
