Internet users are getting used to ‘web 2.0′ sites
As TechCrunch points out, the long tail is getting fatter. This basically means that the average internet user is beginning to adopt sites that we label ‘web 2.0‘ as a website that they commonly visit.
The article gives examples such as iLike’s Facebook application, with over 6 million registered users, and Safari, which has had over 1 million downloads since its launch a few days ago.
This basically makes a point that most internet users don’t care if something is web 2.0 or not; they will use it as long as it’s useful to them.
The main thing that we have to remember is to stop building web applications that are supposedly geared towards a web 2.0 audience, and instead, build things that are useful.
I want to stop seeing a new todo list being released every week; or, if you feel an urge to release one, then add in some useful functionality, such as Todoist, which is my personal todo list of choice.
What are your thoughts on the whole web 2.0 thing? Do you think we’re nearing the end as it becomes integrated into the rest of the ‘mainstream web’?
