The article discusses the use of Web 2.0 in journalism. Web 2.0 is a catch phrase developed after the dot-com crash to capture the dynamic opportunities and vision of the Web when most people had lost hope in the efficiency of the technology. The elements of Web 2.0 include the platform, broadband and contributions. It provides a variety of search engines which are useful in journalism such as the Wikipedia.org. It also contributes to the development of business opportunities for the corporate sector.
