Why Web 2.0 Can Fail?

March 20, 2009

The Krafty Librarian brings up some great points about how enthusiasm for Web 2.0 can lead to its misuse and potential failure. She cites how using the term makes something new and exciting even if it is not the right tool for the situation. Another example is launching a tool just because it is Web 2.0 but without a specific purpose, such as, creating a wiki without a specific goal for the stakeholders or having few interested in adopting the tool. In IT we often refer to this as a solution looking for a problem rather than identifying a problem and the looking for the appropriate technology to solve it.
