  • Social software Or Web 2.0 applications, also known as social apps, include communication tools and interactive tools often based on the Internet. Communication tools typically handle the capturing, storing and presentation of communication, usually written but increasingly including audio and video as well. Interactive tools handle mediated interactions between a pair or group of users. They focus on establishing and maintaining a connection among users, facilitating the mechanics of conversation and talk. Although we do not have a generally accepted definition but by social software we mean software that makes collaborative behaviour, the organisation and moulding of communities, self-expression, social interaction and feedback possible for individuals. Another important element of existing definition of social software is that it allows structured mediation of opinion between people, in a centralized or selft-regulating manner. The most improved area for social software is that Web2.0 applications can all promote cooperation between people and the creation of online communities more than ever before.
