Various companies are too making the economic complexities of the offline world into the real and easy online world to turn the Web 2.0 engines to make millions. Web 2.0 is a brainchild of Sir Tim Bernes Lee and was conceptualized as a result of the brainstorming session between O’Reilly and MediaLive International.
But now she can say good-bye to Web 2.0 as Web 2.3 is slowly taking its place. Reference: O’ Reilly, T. 2005. What Is Web 2.0: Design Patterns and Business Models for the Next Generation of Software.

The word spam strikes at our nerves like a cord, we are all afraid. But the question raised is: what is Spam and why should we afraid of the spam? But before answering this, there is a need to understand first what is spam?
All of us find our email boxes full of unsolicited and uninvited mails that many times may fill up your storage space. These mails are more of advertisement letters inviting you to read their mails and act upon. In technical terms, these ads are called as unsolicited commercial emails (UCEs). (Weaver, Online) (Source image: online) Spam Emails are regularly offered to the Internet users who want to avoid unsolicited email. These mails could come from anywhere or any department and are of two types: Cancellable Usenet spam and Email spam.
Cancellable Usenet spam is a single message sent to 20 or more Usenet newsgroups, makes them loose the utility of newsgroups loading them with unnecessary posts whereas Email spam makes the individual users their target by sending them direct mail messages. (Mueller, Online)
