Interactive media theory where an infrastructure focusing on content creation, management, and dissemination is built for the user to generate that content in a community framework.
Urban Dictionary falls under the Web 2.0 theory because they built an infrastructure to create, manage, and disseminate the definition of slang terms generated by the user and ranked by the community.

A buzzword used by dullards to seem hip and "in" on "latest" technology, in hopes that no one will be perceptive enough to see that what's "Web 2.0" isn't new at all, but rather a catch-all term for websites that give people imagined self-importance by letting them comment on and share content with other equally moronic readers.
OMG this website is so Web 2.0! Check it out there's a button to post this to my facebook, myspace, and twitter! Now all my friends will see how hip I am and maybe someone will finally love me!

The ultra annoying format of major surface web sites in 2017 made for windows phones which no one uses. Popups are now embedded into web pages so Adblock doesnt work on them. Leads to frustration and has a negative impact on mental health in general. Too much surfing on Web 2.0 can lead to attending anger management groups. Trust me.

Urban Dictionary along with Facebook, Clickbait articles, Yahoo and Youtube are the worst offenders. Basically all the big players on the web.

It also makes it easier for the illuminati to spy on you under the pretence "Just collecting user data sob sob just doing our job."
I just roll my mouse over the screen to the bottom to get at my windows taskbar and I get heaps of annoying popups, goddamn Web 2.0

Fucking web 2.0 if I wanted to see the full description of something I'd click the link. Im not so lazy I cant click a mouse button.

Pretty much the current generation of the internet and this will probably last til about 2012. It is the internet where blogging, social networking, forums, wikis, video sharing, webcams, sharing, getting pwned, etc. takes place.

Web 1.0 was the primitive internet where you went to campbells soup.com and there it is. Web 2.0 is pretty much where you can read and post blogs about soup and share info about your favorite soup on your Facebook profile. There is a Web 3.0 coming into the future which will probably be the iPhone Web, in which the internet might be in different places than a computer.
Kraft.com is Web 1.0
MySpace.com is Web 2.0

Refers to the internet in terms of blogging, open source programming, RSS and XML programming among others. Web 2.0 is a general discription of web use which eschews heretofore traditional concepts of centralized, "hunt by favoritets" type search and response techniques in favor of aggregators and blogging interconnects and decentralized community systems.
"Bookmarks are so old school, geek. Aggregators and podcasting are more Web 2.0..."
