Web 2.0 is made of written text but also images, movies, music, and sound, moving from textual information to multimedia. With Web 2.0, the user can create information, because of the availability of software that is cheap and easy to use. Wikis, Blogs and RSS are examples of how this new generation, as well as the older ones, uses these technologies to give, receive, and create information.
