Web 2.0 and the global community

Web 2.0 is an interactive, user generated tool that can be used for social media, marketing research, business analysis, and even world crisis management. The emergence of web 2.0 was the creation of a unique community of users who are encouraged to add value to their digital interface of choice. Although there are vandals trolling these sites who choose to deface others users comments or works there are measures in place to correct and limit these instances. I find the most interesting aspect of web 2.0 to be the growing charitable/awareness sectors. Users can now support and promote the organization of their choice. Global crises are now center stage with the entire world as an audience. I believe that it will be interesting to see what advancements will be generated by web 2.0 and the newer web 3.0 in the coming years in both humanitarian and business aspects.

    With respect to the growing charity/philanthropy sector, do you think the ability to share one’s charitable activities or donations with followers or friends via social media helps those organizations promote their cause or issue? If so, with what results? ~Prof. L.
