What is clear from the author's analysis is that RosettaNet can be relied on as a communications medium for suppliers collaborating with one another to increase overall supply chain transparency - a critical part of making an entire supply chain network more efficient. Second, the use of RosettaNet for order management transactions, which are critical for the economic functioning of the entire supplier network, have been proven to be the most often supported PIP of all. The author fails to mention this point yet points to the role of industry-specific standards as critical for the growth of online marketplaces. B2B e-commerce's evolving foundation based on Web Services is aligning to the most critical requirements and needs of enterprises, and these include validation of transactions, collaboration between suppliers and customers, and the need for higher levels of velocity at both a content management and order management layer of the networks being…
solution of the heterogeneous data integration problem is presented with the explanation if the criteria to be employed in the approval of the validity. The tools to be used are also indicated.
The proposed solution is to use semantic web technologies (Semantic Data Integration Middleware (SIM) Architecture) for the initial integration process (Cardoso,2007) and then couple it with broker architecture to improve integration and interoperability while solving the problem of multi-level impedance (Kashyap and Sheth,2002).
For an elaborate diagram see figure the figure below.
Integration via the semantic web technologies According to Barnett and Standing (2001) the rapid developments in the business environments due to the adoption of internet-based technologies have resulted in the need to implement improved business models, development of improved network systems as well as alliances and the implementation of creative marketing strategies. The strategy to be developed for integrating heterogeneous data must take into account the…

Integration Approaches Practices
The work of Ziegler and Dittrich (nd) reports that integration is "becoming more and more indispensable in order not to drown in data while starving for information." The goal of data integration is "to combine data from different sources by applying global data model and by detecting and resolving schema and data conflicts so that a homogenous, unified view can be provided." (Ziegler and Dittrich, nd) There are two reasons for data integration:
(1) Given a set of existing data sources, an integrated view is created to facilitate data access and reuse through a single data access point;
(2) Given a certain information need, data from different complementing sources is to be combined to gain a more comprehensive basis to satisfy the information need. (Ziegler and Dittrich, nd)

0 is "…a broad name used for a number of different experiments that are being done in the research community" (eddy & Goodman, 2002, p. 12). The emphasis here is in 'experiment' as Web 2.0 is a platform for the testing of new applications and innovation, as well as being an area for research and development in education and science.
The differences in the way that Web 2.0 functions can be seen in the concept of the Internet as a new platform or environment. This is a concept that exceeds the idea that a new Internet would merely offer new applications that would be in essence an extension of Internet 1.0. As Tim O'eilly and John Battelle note, Web 2.0 means "… building applications that literally get better the more people use them, harnessing network effects not only to acquire users, but also to learn from them and build on…

For a few decades now, since the introduction of the Internet, the World Wide Web has become the most used form of information resource. Thousands of web sites owned by public and private sectors are currently accessible over the Internet. Aside from quick provision of information the World Wide Web provides, ease of accessibility is one of the factors that has made it a popular choice. One doesn't need to bother going to a library, whose accessibility is usually limited within an area, and find for the necessary information from large volumes of books. With the World Wide Web, the availability of Internet cafes almost everywhere, as well as the ownership of computers in many households these days, the accessibility of information has provided convenience to many users.
A group of people in the Internet community, however, was somehow not taken into account when most of the current…

C. Product Improvement and New Products
As the Web Content Monetization System has yet to be launched there are no significant product improvements committed to prospects or customers yet. It is common during this phase of a new systems' development to have a series of 2nd and 3rd generation product enhancements which will be added over the systems' life. It is highly advisable that a Customer Advisory Council be created that seeks to gain insights and intelligence from the top twenty content providers globally to ensure the subsequent system configurations and plans are consistent with their specific needs.
The initial design and development budget are shown in Table 1. This includes the costs of the development of the Web content management application, distributed order management system, AJAX security testing and audits to ensure the payment gateways are secure, multi-taxonomy support for content providers' unique approaches to organizing their…

Web Services in the context of an SOA framework are designed to be the catalyst of greater order accuracy and speed, further increasing performance of the entire company in the process. The collection of Web Services is meant to not replace the traditional and highly engrained EP systems in a company; rather Web Services are meant to extend and enhance their performance and making them more agile over time (Alonso, Kuno, Casati, Machiraju, 2004). Theorists have suggested that the SOA framework is only as successful as the approaches taken to creating a unified Web Services strategy that creates a single system of record of customer data the entire company standardizes on (Kobielus, 2007). This concept of the system of record is defined as Master Data Management (MDM) and is the basis of analytics and Business Intelligence (BI), which are fueling more focus on measuring the value of SOA frameworks from…

With the 2004 U.S. Presidential elections, blogs' growth accelerated dramatically as nearly every news network, candidate in both U.S. Senate and House of epresentative races, and political pundit has their own blog competing for the publics' attention. The era of 2004 to today in fact has created a blogging industry that is pervasive in its availability of publishing platforms (USC Annenberg School of Journalism) and also in its readers for organizing and aggregating content of interest (Boeri, 2007).
Since 2004, technologies have emerged for completing text mining of blogs to find linguistic patterns in the mass of posts and also build linguistic models that represent public opinion. The use of latent semantic indexing as a technology has become prevalent as a result.

In conjunction with this the technological aspects of security need to be managed as part of the governance process (Hannon, 2002) to make the change more trustworthy.
The impacts of Web 2.0 technologies and social networks are revolutionizing how government agencies interact internally and with each other. The need for overcoming resistance to change, redefining processes so they are made more effective with the addition of technology, are all critical aspects of managing the migration to new technologies. Ultimately it is in the automating of processes that hinder organizations' effectiveness where the true value of technology is found.

Web Conference program research
I refer to the work you assigned me, to research on the best web conference program which can help you hold a weekly status meeting. I did research through the internet regarding the same. Through my research, I looked into four various kind of web conference programs namely, OnWebinar, Vyew, OpenMeeting and DimDim. However, to come up with one program, I analyzed each in consideration with the Operating System installed in our computers and other various factors.
Therefore, I would like to recommend Vyew as the best web conference program, because of its features which have listed below:
It's a browser-based web conference program and it operates effectively on Windows, Mac and Linux as well.
It has hundreds of active/archived meeting per user, which means it can support a number of users at a time.
It's very flexible compared to other…

Service Theory design is not a basic foothold that can be explained in only a few sentences. There is a lot of thought, experimentation, research, and trial and error that goes into the creation of a sound theory. First, it is important to acknowledge all of the things that can play a role in the design of a theory itself. esearchers have reported that community and culture significantly influence value orientation (Goel, 2010), perceived needs, and motivation as well as provide the ground for creating shared understanding. All disciplines have their own cultures, and all cultures evolve through cross-cultural exchanges. It all starts with a series of questions and ideas that the researcher would like to find out background information on, and possible determine information that may not have been evident upon first glance.
The questions that would need further clarity are: (1) what model best fits the current prospective…

In other words, the facilities that are available will be laid out in the best possible pattern and fashion so as to maximize efficiency and convenience for people who use the services (Handler & Mirchandani, 1979). There is obviously no way to put all of the facilities into the same space, and some of them take up more land than others, but there is no reason that urban planning officials, city leaders, and companies that want to build in a particular area cannot work together to meet everyone's needs. Often they want to accomplish this, but they simply are not sure what the best way to go about it would be.

Other features of the DontDateCreeps.com community include an embedded instant messaging application and a site-specific email account. Because of the dangers and fears associated with online dating, users should also be able to rate their dates with other site members in an anonymous application. To increase the robustness of the DontDateCreeps.com format, the community should also become linked with local businesses like restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and entertainment venues.

Web 3.0: The New Web
Everyone knows that technology is advancing rapidly. What that entails is the restructuring of what we once knew into something better. That is exactly what is happening now with the slow movement into Web 3.0, an Internet that is layered and more tailored to a mobile and interactive user.
Web 3.0 takes the internet to a whole new level. According to the research, this will be the "third generation of Internet-based services that collectively comprise what might be called 'the intelligent Web' -- such as those using semantic web, microformats, natural language search, data-mining, machine learning, recommendation agents, and artificial intelligence technologies -- which emphasize machine-facilitated understanding of information in order to provide a more productive and intuitive user experience" (Spivack, 2014). Essentially, the Internet will be smarter and more adaptive than ever before. This will allow the Internet to adapt to the unique demands…

Skills must be honed that create a functional page that users will view and use as the client hopes them to.
Many new eb designers produce eb pages that seem to ignore fundamental principles of "good design": full of colored backgrounds, animated pictures, multiple colors and styles of text, and little to no navigation or eb-based structure. Even in courses devoted to eb design, students still produce pages that lack unity, coherence and emphasis: "though they [students] seem to understand (and can critique) others' efforts, they're stymied when it's time for production. Few have the skills or experience writing in this medium" (Yancey & ickliff, 2001, p. 180). Similarly, individuals working on their own or working from documentation struggle with being able to create eb pages due to the same lack of experience writing on the eb.
For this reason, relative examples, as explained in the previous subheading…

Advertising permeates the World Wide Web, just as it pervades television, radio, public space, and print publications. However, the form, presentation, and content of web advertising can differ significantly from other types of ads. Compared with television and print media, web-based advertising can be media rich and far more interactive than any other type of advertising. Web ads are also more diverse than print, television, or radio ads. For example, web advertising ranges from simple sponsored text blurbs such as those contained in the sidebars of any Google search to animated banner and pop-up ads to Flash films complete with sound. Web ads also put the viewer closely in touch with the source vendor in a way that print, television, or radio ads cannot. With a web ad, the viewer can, and is even encouraged to, connect directly with the company website to make a purchase. Moreover, with…
This ensures a high degree of relevancy for each message sent to HP customers, thereby driving up online sales of supplies, complimentary products and even replacement products.

The proper procedure to design a website involves planning, innovation, and proper execution. The purpose of the website, along with its actual content, when melded together correctly, offers the visitor information and flexibility.
The first step a website innovator undertakes is to determine the audience of the website. Secondly, the innovator determines what the purpose of the website is. Although both of these steps seem simple, it is a crucial step. These two items need determined and defined clearly before further planning.
The goal of the site is the next determination. The website innovator decides what the goal of the site is. Website builders design sites to disseminate information. Other sites implement a design to sell or persuade, while others collect information from the visitor. Many times, the sites have multiple purposes, such as provide information and sell a product or service during the visit. (An example of…
Service Master has a family of brands that consist of companies that deliver services to home and businesses include pest control, maid service, landscaping and other services. The company has a high dependence on labor, and this labor must not only be professional in demeanor (quality service) but it must be well-trained and able to deliver the service to a high standard. There are two factors that could potentially increase the company's demand for labor. The first is a growth in the business. There is little opportunity to scale up this business, so any increase in demand equates to an increase in demand for labor at ServiceMaster. It should be noted that a growth in the business can also be met without increasing staff, should staff improve efficiency. Given the nature of the service, it is unlikely that ServiceMaster, if operating at capacity, will be able to improve efficiency much.…

In addition there must be shared risk for SLA performance so the data centers have ownership of their performance to the customer level (Katzan, Dowling, 2010).
E. Capacity Levels and Inventory Management
There is no inventory as the proposed venture is leasing yearly access to a Web content monetization suite of applications. Capacity levels therefore are more determined by the capacity of data from customers, specifically from their enterprise content management, digital asset management…

B2B content creators including D&B, homas Register and many others primarily sell to the VPs of Finance, Operations, Sales and Service as their content is actively used in strategies. he primary differentiator of B2B content is its use for initiating and completing strategies within and outside the organizations' four walls while B2C content is primary used for entertainment (Ying, Korneliussen, Gronhaug, 2009). B2B content therefore has a more value-based pricing and evaluation aspect to it relative to its B2C counterpart (Ghose, Yang, 2009).

The balkanization of Web content providers is leading to an increasingly fragmented and highly segmented content arena in B2B (Cheng, Blankson, Wang, Chen, 2009). From the many business models created by portal providers that range from Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) to Thomas Register to many variants in between, B2B Web content has found a dominant role in supply chain, strategic sourcing, B2B marketing, selling and service processes (Evans, 2009) . B2B content creators including D&B, Thomas Register and many others primarily sell to the VPs of Finance, Operations, Sales and Service as their content is actively used in strategies. The primary differentiator of B2B content is its use for initiating and completing strategies within and outside the organizations' four walls while B2C content is primary used for entertainment (Ying, Korneliussen, Gronhaug, 2009). B2B content therefore has a more value-based pricing and evaluation aspect to it relative to its B2C counterpart (Ghose, Yang, 2009). Implicit in the selling of Web content monetization solutions is also the need to be a trusted advisor to the senior management team members of any organization. This concept of the trusted advisor as it relates to content monetization is critically important as the valuation of an intangible good makes for wide interpretation of pricing and value defined (Liebermann,
In the case of Web content monetization software that takes into account consumer-based media including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal and present and potential Rupert Murdoch-owned properties (Kirby, Englemart, 2010) the challenges of system integration (Lopes, Galletta, 2006) are small compared to resistance on the part of consumers (Pauwels, Weiss, 2008). Defining the pricing elasticity by the latency or age of the content, developing strategies for reaching specific audiences of interest, and creating marketing programs that can underscore the innate value of the content are all critical. The use of web content monetization software will also be segment and audience-specific. The development and continual improvement of marketing strategies for reselling content also requires these Web content monetization systems have analytics as well.
About a decade ago when the World Wide Web first launched, only the brave and commercial entrepreneurs established web sites. If they could not handle the HTML coding themselves, it was necessary to work with a web designer/graphic designer, who charged thousands of dollars. This was a new technology, so vendors charged a lot for their services. They were learning as they went, as well. Within a couple of years, thousands and then hundreds of thousands of organizations and individuals of all kinds started getting involved with the web. Soon the price of web sites started tumbling down, and now they are available for free by many services. Another change started occurring in most recent years, individuals began having their own personal sites on which they blogged, wrote articles about themselves and their feelings, interviewed others, and provided information about things that interested them. Social media is just…

NFLShop.com is designed for the impulse buy of the loyal fan, and strives to capitalize on team loyalty over its own website's loyalty. This is where the site could improve. It is too focused on team loyalty at the expense of its own website loyalty. This is evident in the very small font and graphics navigation for signing up for the site and for requesting a catalog. As a result, the site must do the majority of its sales purely on impulse purchases.
Despite this shortcoming, the site delivers on the critical success factor of delivering trustworthy content and information assurance (Kim, Sivasailam, ao, 344). This aspect of the site is what makes it succeed; it makes the site trusted with loyal NFL fans. This catalyst of trust compensates for weaknesses in navigation and the lack of loyalty it is generating for the site itself.
The critical success factors…

Korea and Southeast Asia have been targeted as emerging markets for skiers (Hudson 2000, 27). China has 2 million skiers, although only 10% own their own gear. However, the numbers of Chinese skiers has increased on average over 100% annually, for the past several years, with an average 750,000 increase (Skiing in China today, 2006, Beijing Ski Club).
In Russia, long-standing widespread interest in winter sports and higher levels of disposable income have resulted in participation increasing at a rate of 20% annually (the Alpine world market, 2007, SkiStar)

As has been mentioned throughout this thesis, the entire aspect of mass customization as it relates to the development of a stable quote-to-order process throughout manufacturing is critical. In this specific area is where many manufacturers face the dilemma of being entirely project-based in their manufacturing and business strategy approach or move more towards functional manufacturing with the exception being mass customization and a more fluid, agile, quote-to-order process. Figure 1 shows this dilemma graphically.

This research proposal looks to determine how the selection of a given cloud platform impacts user intention, satisfaction and long-term adoption.
In order to evaluate the contributions of each of these platforms, each is briefly reviewed within the context of this literature review. First, the most commonly used one in start-up cloud database service providers, Amazon Web Services (AWS), is analyzed. AWS is comprised of the following components: Amazon DynamoDB and SimpleDB Services, Amazon Elastic Cloud Service (EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3), Amazon elational Database Service (DS) and Amazon SQS. Amazon has also developed a cloud-based content sharing service that capitalizes on the depth of database expertise and support in this platform. Called Amazon CloudFront, this specific Web Service is designed to allow for Amazon ElastiCache configuration and use of a secured Cloud DNS service called oute 53. All of these technologies are combined…

Both ADP and enterprise replication are processes that are critical to having an enterprise-wide system perform at an optimal level (Chen, Chen, Maa, 2002).
The disadvantages of using Directory Services are the costs associated initially for creating and keeping them current, the need to have a staff of engineering and software experts on-hand to add functionality to the system as needed, and the complexity of integration across different Directory Services architectures at the operating system level. Directory Services can be extremely complex and when used for role-based access within enterprises, can lock employees out of their own files and systems and the ones they need to use for their jobs as well if only a slight variation is made in the security levels of the users. There is also the downside risk of technology obsolescence as many companies will standardize on a vendors' specific version fo Directory Services, only to…

Should Top Sail implement a eb-based system? hy or why not?
Top sail should implement a eb-based reservation and booking system. This type of system is necessary because it is often more convenient for customers who live in different time zones. The web-based system will also allow customers to see pictures of the time share they are going to reserve so that they know exactly what to expect when they arrive at the destination (Lin, 2010; Aaker & Mills, 2005). A web-based system is also practical because of the amount of time that people spend online and the other types of travel reservations and bookings that are handled over the internet (Dickson et al., 2009). For instance many vacationers also book flights or secure other types of transportation via the internet. As such having a web-based system makes it easier for travelers. In addition such a system is also…

Oesterlen Services for Youth is an organization that helps troubled youth in Ohio. It consists of a counseling center and a foster care placement program, as well as residential services for both male and female youth for intensive care cases. In order for Oesterlen to continue to help as many youth as possible, it has to be up-to-date on its technology. To that end, it has set some goals for its computers from both a software and hardware standpoint. The current M.T.I. goals for the organization are to consolidate the servers and applications as much as possible. By partnering with others, Oesterlen will be better able to fulfill its mission of helping youth. The alliance between Qbase, ADP online, and the merger of a sizeable competitor will enable Oesterlen the ability to serve the clients better while maintaining the delicate balance between the mission goals and…

The customer owes money to a friend or wishes to transfer money to someone. In this situation there are three options available. If the two parties are in the proximity of each other the payee's device sends the transaction data over to the payer's handset using either IrDA, T, or RFID communication. If the two parties are not in the position of using a direct link, the payee can send the necessary information over the air (SMS, IM) to the other party. In certain cases the payer initiates a transfer while the payee may not even be aware of the fact that he or she is going to receive money. In this case the payer can manually input all necessary information into the handset. Depending on the transaction value the payer in all three cases has the option to select either its bank or MNO for processing the payment. The…

Using the data available on this page, fill in the table below. (Lately, the USPS has changed stamp prices in May -- after Mother's Day. Just use the simple average of the pre-May price and the post-May price for the average price in a given year. The 2007 price is done for you; it was 39 cents until May 14 and then 41 cents after, so the average price is approximately 40 cents.) After you have recorded the data for the first two rows, calculate the approximate revenue from mail-handling for each of the three years. (The price is given per ounce, but most pieces of mail weigh less than an ounce and still contain one stamp.)

The relevance in this is to make the use preferred owing to it flexibility. E-resources need to offer the end user flexibility not to visit the physical library to access the information. The web-based resource makes multiple accesses to similar resource possible and this reduces the congestion in the physical library facilities. The ease of congestion will serve to improve the learners experience as-well-as reduce the workload to source moderators.

Financial Implications or equired Budget:
The financial implications for these marketing strategies are very cost effective. One of the most costly part of the strategy is likely to be the initial revamp of the company website, with hiring a seasoned web content writer, for the new SEO content creation. PPC advertising is very reasonable in price. In some instances, such as advertising via Facebook, the PPC amount is left up to the discretion of the advertiser, with a minimum of 1 cent per click. Currently, their suggested rate is between 47 cents and 69 cents per click. An additional cost to this advertising will be the design of the ads themselves. With Facebook, a…

oanoke County School System Faculty and Staff's Perceptions egarding the Use of Web-Based Professional Development
Implications for Improvement of Practice
Introduction (could be longer. Include mandatory teacher ongoing certification standards)
Ongoing staff development has long been a vital part of the educational environment. It is the means by which the faculty and staff of a school system are kept current in educational trends, technologies and philosophies. In a diverse society, social pressures felt in the classroom are continually making the teaching process more challenging.
In the past few years alone, the advance in computer capabilities and in-home computer gaming equipment has affected the attention span of the average student. Elementary and secondary education students have a different paradigm as to what is interesting. Thus the challenge in the classroom to grab, hold, and mold the students attention have changed. An effective teacher must be aware of these changes,…

Dunlop's Web ules
The topic of industrial relations has been considerably important for both the employers as well as the employees. The topic is generally discussed in terms of relationship between both employer and the employees and moderating factors that govern outcomes of this relationship. John Dunlop was an eminent British economist who published his famous book called 'Industrial elation System' in 1958. In this book, Dunlop presented the theory called systems theory of industrial relations. Briefly, Dunlop's systems theory observed that industrial relation/s is a system composed of four main elements. Thus, industrial relation system is composed of certain actors, ideology that bonds the industrial system, contexts of the relationships, and certain rules that govern and moderate the relationship of governance of these actors. This also implied that an industrial relation system can be having distinct subsystem from economic or societal system in which the employer operates. Thus, four…

Internet Service Provider (ISP) Web Content Law and Ethics
The objective of this work is to answer whether Internet service providers have a responsibility to regulate the content that is available on the World Wide Web? This work will additionally answer as to whether the presence and ease of availability of pornography to the general public a tribute to free speech and a reflection of social maturity or an example of the potential damage that unregulated markets and the hegemony of technology have reaped upon society?
The Internet is such that allows consumers, businesses, and industry, alike to "do many new things in unique and efficient ways." (Tekxam, nd) There are however, reported to be areas of both legal and ethical concern with regards to the responsibilities of Internet Service providers. Some of those areas include protection of intellectual property, fraud prevention, protection of freedom of expression, protection of privacy,…

An Analysis of ilbur's Maturation in Charlotte's eb
The journey of ilbur (the runt-sized pig) from childhood into adulthood is full of perils, twists and turns. hile ilbur's story encompasses the lives of several animals and a few humans, it is more than a collection of assorted characters gathered together in a children's tale: it is a kind of bildungsroman -- a coming-of-age novel in which a pig (ilbur) undergoes a maturation process thanks to some help from a few loving friends. This paper will show how ilbur matures into an adult despite some handicaps and a few very real threats along the way.
As Nancy Larrick points out, E.B. hite's Charlotte's eb contains a "startling note of realism" when it introduces the very first threat of ilbur's life: the ax (Larrick 67). The serious defect of ilbur's size (at least in the eyes of Fern's father) sheds…

What is Web 2.0?
Web 2.0 is reported to be a "techno-culture term" that was first used in 2004. (Gil, 2014, p. 1) The term Web 2.0 is a term that describes the World Wide Web which has "now evolved into a provider of online software services." (Gil, 2014, p. 1) The original World Wide Web 1.0 is reported to have been "just a massive collection of static electronic brochures" however, since 2003 it is reported that the World Wide Web "has evolved into a provider of remote-access software." (Gil, 2014, p. 1) The World Wide Web is such that has become Web 2.0 or the "interactive Web." (Gil, 2014, p. 1) Web 2.0 offers a variety of interaction software…

web on database processing?
Before the event of the World Wide Web, database processing was relatively limited to one database area, within one system of complied computer data. In other words, in a medical office, patient records had to be entered by data entry staff into a singular computer database, but could not be shared with another office if the patient was seeing another physician in another office, unless a currier brought a disk or printed files to the office. Now, if a patient was seeing a physician in another office, that patient could have his or her records immediately accessed by the office through the use of the World Wide Web technology. The introduction of information sharing via the World Wide Web can potentially prevent misunderstandings, misinformation, and generally increase the ability of individuals to be better informed about the specifics of their financial or physical condition, and the…
Internet: Security on the Web
Security on the Web -- What are the Key Issues for Major Banks?
The age of digital technology -- email, Web-driven high-speed communication and information, online commerce, and more -- has been in place now for several years, and has been touted as a "revolutionary" technological breakthrough, and for good reason: This technology presents enormous new business opportunities. For example, by moving the key element of marketing and sales from local and regional strategies onto the global stage, and by providing dramatically improved customer convenience, the Web offers medium, small and large companies -- including banks -- unlimited growth potential.
That having been said, there are problems associated with online services, in particular online banking services, and security is at the top of the list of these issues. Some of the most serious security issues associated with Web-banking keep customers away from this technology, in…

Originally developed in 1989, the World Wide Web has fundamentally changed the way many people shop, work, recreate and receive an education. Likewise, the emergence of e-commerce has had enormous implications for the business world and governments alike, making this innovation one of the most significant in human history. Moreover, tens of millions of new Web pages are added to the World Wide Web every day, and current signs indicate this growth will continue to accelerate into the foreseeable future. One of the more important trends to emerge in recent years has been the use of the World Wide Web for social interaction in what has been termed the "Social Web." To gain a better understanding of the Social Web and its implications, this paper provides a review of the relevant literature, followed by a summary of the research and important findings in the conclusion.

What is missing is a Web Site that offers is the following:
1. A searchable database including as many colleges and universities as possible which includes a list of the majors for which they are most known.
2. As many links as possible leading to different career choices and the major one should choose in order to become involved in that industry as well as average pay scales for that career choice.
2. An e-mail messaging system which links the viewer with a qualified, up-to-date career counselor to whom he or she may direct questions.
3. A whole application on the college enrollment process, essays, letters of recommendation, etc., and the qualifications necessary to be accepted to that school.
4. A test that measures the student's career choice inclinations.
