Web 2.0 can be described in three parts:

1. Rich Internet application (RIA):
– It defines the experience brought from desktop to browser, whether it is “rich” from a graphical point of view or a usability/interactivity or features point of view.

2. Web-oriented architecture (WOA):
– It defines how Web 2.0 applications expose their functionality so that other applications can leverage and integrate the functionality providing a set of much richer applications.
– Examples are RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds, and web services (Easley integrating one website content to another website content).

3. Social Web:
– It defines how Web 2.0 websites tend to interact much more with the end-user and make the end-user an integral part of the website, either by adding his or her profile, adding comments on content, uploading new content, or adding user-generated content (e.g., personal digital photos).

Limitations of Web 2.0:

– People are highly dependent on the internet to network.
– Wastage of time.
– Keyword-based.
