A Web 2.0 site makes the users creators of the content instead of limiting them to view the content created for them. Popular web 2.o web sites being you tube, Wikipedia, blogs etc. where the user is the source of the content.

Advantages of web 2.0:

  1. Democarcy is themajor advantage. It allows anyone to publish content easily without getting edited by editors like the new paper articles
  2. Retaining knowledge. It is unique for each individual and it is in the interest of gaining and sharing knowledge that people are willing to use Web 2.0 elements like YouTube, Wikipedia, blogs etc. In fact, Web 2.0 could be a force to record history. Online media and data storage is considered to correct some flaws of traditional storage mechanism such as inconsistent memory 
  3. Really does not cause any threat to talent search .While everyone has the opportunity to speak their mind by blogging , uploadingvideod , only the truly talented pople who can keep the audience engaged ca succeed.

Disadvantages of web 2.0:

1       It is dangerous for the creation of distribution of arts. After all, when anyone can create a blog of website and write information (without any serious validation of the content being published), or distribute various forms of media, doesn't it dilute the ability for others to make money?

2       The major concern of the refuters is the inability of the Web 2.0 to create information which is accurate and factual, based on scholarly information. Is it really that important that you archive this information?

3       No gatekeepers to check the authenticity of the information being published.

4       Users being media illiterate and believe just about anything on net.

5       Leads to corruption since it is open and free to many anonymous users.

Advantages of web 2.0:
1. A major element of web 2.0 is the Democracy. It allows anyone to publish content easily without getting edited by editors like the new paper articles.
2. Retaining knowledge. It is unique for each individual and it is in the interest of gaining and sharing knowledge that people are willing to use Web 2.0 elements like YouTube, Wikipedia, blogs etc. In fact, Web 2.0 could be a force to record history. Online media and data storage is considered to correct some flaws of traditional storage mechanism such as inconsistent memory.
3. Really does not cause any threat to talent search .While everyone has the opportunity to speak their mind by blogging, not everyone will be witty or interesting enough to hold an audience for long. The fact of the matter is that there will still be people who are better than others. While anyone can write a blog, not everyone will be talented enough to capitalize on it. While anyone can create a video and upload it to YouTube, not everyone will be able to make a video that creates a large amount of buzz and marketing capability. As you can see, even with Web 2.0, those who are truly talented will be a success
