Mason City, IA – Jan. 6, 2009 - Web 2.0 describes the phenomenon of social networks, from Facebook to YouTube. These social network users are the new target audience found in the technology marketplace.

From elementary schools to the business world, the global exchange of information through social media happens 24/7 on sites such as Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, Wikis and Webkins.
