What Are Web 2.0 Tools and Why They Should be Incorporated into the Research
It is no longer sustainable for a research organisation to ignore incorporating Web 2.0 tools among its work and research strategies, let alone preventing individual researchers from using them from a workplace. Increasing amount of research is done via these tools or is based on some evidence collected through web 2.0. Moreover, some research can not be done without these tools, particularly research on internet users’ online behavior. Social networking and other web 2.0 tools are increasingly being used for distribution of research findings. [@eqpaho]
