The term Web 2.0 was coined by Tim O’Reilly in 2004 to refer to a second generation of Web-based user communities and a range of new services such as social networks, blogs, wikis, which encourage collaboration and the exchange of information between users”. This is the definition of Web 2.0 given by the Wikipedia (if you want a 1.0 definition look for it at the Encyclopaedia Britannica ;-).
According to a study by Bankinter Spaniards have uploaded over 150 million photos on Flickr, 100 million videos on YouTube, participated in 1.5 million articles on Wikipedia, taken more than 13 million answers in Yahoo! Answers, and created approximately 60 million blogs!
We are clearly moving towards a more collaborative model where the content generated by users becomes increasingly predominant. Although this trend is taking the web by storm, most wedding websites are stuck in the past. At Zankyou we want to change this. We want to allow our users to take full advantage of what the Web 2.0 can offer.
Zankyou users can easily create a wedding website (see photo) with a private URL. This website includes all the details of the celebration (maps, photos, etc. ..) and has a space where guest can discuss, share photos, subscribe to the news feed, participate in the surveys created by the couple, etc…
In other words, Zankyou wants to add a 2.0 to weddings all over Europe!
