Web 2.0 and Social Media

Filed under: Internet,Personal; Author: Les Bain; Posted: February 9, 2007 at 5:50 pm;

I have two members of the Millennial generation in my household. They do not understand the big deal about Web 2.0 and Social Media.

They were both on the Internet at a very early age, and they always experienced the web as a read/write media. They were never passive on the Internet. They were in chat rooms, forums, groups, and bulletin boards from the start. They both have long term friends they met online.

And of course there were aggressive household safety rules. They helped define those rules by their participation in various Internet safety forums and groups.

When we discuss Web 2.0 and Social Media, they just do not get it. For them, it is their parent’s generation finally figuring out what the Internet was all along.
