Where am I?
Web 2.0 is a term which describes the trend in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aims to enhance creativity, information sharing, and, most notably, collaboration among users. These concepts have led to the development and evolution of web-based communities and hosted services, such as social-networking sites (for example, Del.icio.us and Flickr), wikis, blogs, and folksonomies.
