One of the most happening thing on the web now has to be Web 2.0. So, what actually is Web 2.0?

Web 2.0, is actually a phrase coined by O’Reilly Media in 2003 and popularized by series of conferences after that especially the first Web 2.0 conference in 2004. It specifically refers to a perceived second generation of web-based communities and web services, or in simple terms web-based applications.

If you inspect carefully, you will find almost all Web 2.0 websites have a few of the following elements in common:

  • Simple and clean web design
  • Simple and user friendly navigation
  • Bold logos
  • Big text
  • Strong colors
  • Clever user of gradients
  • Use reflections in their design
  • Cute icons
  • Star icons and graphics
