Web 1.0 Web 2.0 Visual Difference

The following questions were asked near the end of this article, Do you like the evolving web culture? Do you think that web 2.0 has helped users get more interactive or do you think it is just a propaganda term created to wipe out the old web standards?

I think web 2.0 has created a ton of opportunities. Ideas are turning into reality for many people and because of web 2.0, the barrier to entry is practically nil. Of course, the barrier to entry or lack thereof could be considered a drawback.

At any rate, I think social-networking is out of control and we are being deluged in web 2.0 startups on a daily basis. I think it will alright though, considering the market aka userbase will determine which of these startups stick around for the long haul, or which ones will die off.

UK Version Of StumbleUpon


Newswire is reporting that Streakr.com has entered into a beta phase and they are calling on users to test out their site. Streakr is described as a social networking, bookmarking, web discovery service. Users download a “discovery” bar into their browsers which finds new websites based on that users particular interests. Does this sound familiar yet? If not, please continue.

Users can then rate sites that they like or dislike by clicking on a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” icon. Now the service should really sound familiar! Stumbleupon anyone? The sites can also be reviewed and then shared with other Streakr members via the social network.

The CEO is and co-founder had this to say about Streakr:

“Streakr is unique in that it brings together web discovery, social bookmarking and a social network in a user-friendly, customisable environment.

“Web 2.0 is all about discovering, creating and sharing, so we’ve built Streakr to reflect that. One click and you can find the hidden gems of the web; rate them and instantly share them with your friends.

To make a long story short, it appears as though Streakr.com is going to be the UK version of Stumbleupon in what seems like every aspect. I wonder if they can get away with this?
