Benefits of Web 2.0

After reading Web 2.0, I got a lot of knowledge and also information, too. Among them I like collaboration and interacting because we live in the world to communicate each other. Today is globalization so we have to communicate each other to know update news. So, Web 2.0 is very essential for us.
Web 2.0 can make relationship between women so women can share whatever they faced in their life. They can talk their problem, and also can share their enjoyment, too. After knowing the problems of each other, they will make counseling and they will help to solve the problems. They can promote their rights, gender equality by knowing the rights of women and empowerment. They can’t be depressed. Web 2.0 is connected all over the world so they can find their friends who understand their problems and solve for them by giving advices. Because of getting friends they will not lonely.
I am one of the women so I feel as my above solution. Because of Web 2.0, I can contact with a lot of website like pulse wire, Facebook, Google, and so on. And then I know the news or events in the world which are unbelievable but true which cause in women. I can share my knowledge, news in my community so it is benefits not only for me and but also for my community. When I study in other towns I can contact with my family, my friends so I am not cut off with my society. I am satisfied and happy when I feel lonely because I can interact with my friends from online. I have got knowledge and also opportunities. I can know everything which I am needs or wants by Web 2.0. So Web 2.0 is very essential for me.



The Web, a great connector

Dear Eh Tha Ku,

You are right! Women talking to each other does help solve problems and we learn from each other. Web 2.0 is a great connector. I hope you continue to share what you learn from the web with your community. I look forward to hearing about what is happening in your community. Women are listening. Keep writing!

Many opportunities

Hi Eh Tha Khu,

I think that you've hit some very important points in this piece! Web 2.0 is crucial for people to connect and share information, to escape feelings of isolation and loneliness, and to build relationships.

I hope that you're finding all of these things on PulseWire! It is good to have you here with us. Keep up the great work!

Thank you, Eh Tha Khu, for this submission. I am glad that you have found so much value in the use of Web 2.0, and that it helps you overcome loneliness and gain knowledge and opportunities. Promoting women's rights and gender equality is, as you say, a significant outcome of the use of technology.
