A TAXONOMY SCHEMA FOR WEB 2.0 AND MOBILE 2.0 APPLICATIONS

Marcelo Cortimiglia, Filippo Renga, Andrea Rangone

Abstract

In recent times, much attention has been given to the Web 2.0 phenomenon and related notions such as Social Computing, Social Media and User-Generated Media. However, whenever Web 2.0 is mentioned, it is usually surrounded by vague and ambiguous concepts and definitions, mostly a complex mixture of technical and business aspects. This paper proposes to shed a light in such a fuzzy environment by proposing a taxonomy schema for Web 2.0 applications using as main categorizing criteria the type and characteristics of interaction permitted or facilitated by the applications. The proposed taxonomy schema is then extended to the Mobile 2.0 scenario by discussing the possible implications of mobility applications.
