Abstract

Web services such as wikis, blogs, podcasting, file sharing and social networking are frequently referred to by the term Web 2.0. The innovation of these services lies in their ability to enable an increasing number of users to actively participate on the Internet by creating and sharing their own content and help develop a collective intelligence. In this paper we discuss how we use Web 2.0 techniques such as 'folksonomy' and 'geo-tagging' in a mobile information system to collect and harness the everyday connections and local knowledge of urban residents in order to support their social navigation practices.
