Web 2.0 Summit

Several New Media leaders are meeting in San Francisco for the 3-day Web 2.0 Summit. This is the 4th summit for Web 2.0 and its clear that Facebook is the talk of the summit so far. Facebook has made large strides this year in users, technology, and business. This summer, Facebook decided to let 3rd party developers build applications for the website, making Facebook more of a platform than a social networking site. In just a few short months, there have been nearly 10,000 applications built for Facebook, some by other companies and some by the users themselves. It is the newest trend in Web 2.0 development. Even Apple is going to allow third parties to develop applications for the I-Phone.
