Wired: Porn Falls Behind in 2.0 World

August 11, 2007

 

According to Wired, Porn is not as well suited as Community and Social Networking in a 2.0 universe. From Wired:

 “Porn gets a lot of credit for pushing technology forward. You probably owe your DVD player and your video-on-demand service to dedicated porn fans with discretionary income. But as web technology evolves to support true personalization and community — into Web 2.0 — porn is falling further behind the curve.

“Like content was king in the 1990s, in the days of Web 2.0, community is the kingdom.

“Community is all about interactivity and personalization. Given the interactive nature of sex and the personal nature of porn, you’d think adult sites would be all over Web 2.0. But with a few notable exceptions, they’re not.”

We will presently refrain from making an obscene pun on the title of the piece “Web 2.0 Leaves Porn Behind.” (Wired)
