Web 2.0 is really a catch phrase. There really is no Web 2.0 JSR or specification.

I think Facebook really takes the Web 2.0 idea to heart - real easy to publish photos, create groups, make posts, email, message, share photos, stuff like that, all of which happens very quickly with Ajax calls and JavaScript.

But it's just a catchphrase.
