My Thoughts on Web 2.0

Web 2.0 is all about blogging and reading information that others put out into the world. Another big part of Web 2.0 is Social Networking. I recently ran for Student Government here at SUU and our big platform was about hearing the student voice. That is what Web 2.0 is all about, people want their voice to be heard and this is how they do it. I don't really believe it affects society, except for the fact people spend more time on computers than ever before.
I have been blogging for over 3 years now, and because of this Web 2.0 has played a big part in my life. I am not one to read random blogs, or to read blogs about what people think about politics, celebrities or what's going on in the world. I read blogs about my friends and family. I think it is the greatest way to stay in touch with people I don't get to see on a regular basis.
