i have seen many websites and only few of them are of web2.0 technology i guess So is it tough to program such sites?What is the main concept of web 2.0?
Simple.

In case of Web 1.0, users can only see the content posted by the author. For eg., a normal static website of a company or something. In this case, the company information is just visible to the user to see and download, where the information transfer will be only from Author to the Viewer.

In case of Web 2.0, it includes our CE too, where not only the author posts the information, but also the viewers are able to post the information to the author or the other viewers and collaborate with each other. Consider our CE and you, as a viewer and not a owner of this crazyengineers.com, can post something, which I can see as well as Biggie, the owner can post and see, and I, on the other hand, see and reply to all. Similar ones will be all the websites, in which user can interact, i.e., give some input and receive a response, other than clicking the links, which all the users get the same content.

Best Web 2.0 examples include, Google, GMail, Facebook, Blogs (Wordpress, Blogspot), Forums (phpBB, vBulletin, XenForo, SMF), and so on... Even the contact page, which takes information from the user is a Web 2.0 thingy created by normal users! 😀

A few illustrations to explain this concept...

I had presented a seminar on Web 2.0 several years ago. Let me quickly summarize what 'Web 2.0' is in my own words.

This post summarizes it all: https://www.crazyengineers.com/community/threads/what-is-web-2-0.1174/#post-7198
The 'Search Forums' tab needs to be highlighted! 😁

We'll integrate a better search in the next few days.
@Biggie, I have observed very rarely members do a search before posting.

A lot of our new members are completely new to the concept of 'forums'. 👀

Yeah, I have observed that. We had discussed this before in the Welcome message to newbies!

But Praveen, here! 😁 😛

Oh yes I saw it now! It says, "Keywords: The search could not be completed because the search keywords were too short, too long, or too common." when I typed "what is web 2.0".

When I said, highlight the 'Search Forums' tab I meant that members should be aware to use that option before creating a new thread.

You also didn't use the Search option I suppose! 😛
But I think the search results didn't show.
So nevermind! 😁

I'm aware. We're going to renew our forum search in next upgrade. Will post an announcement once it's ready for the launch.
