When I attended business school in 2001, there was a big hype on how dot com companies would change the way people lived their lives. You name it and there was a dot com company that promised to deliver that service. That was then. Welcome to the new world of web 2.0 today – where practical and cool services are emerging and people are actually using them.
Eventful – Here is one of many useful web 2.0 applications that is changing the way consumers, end-users are taking control. With Eventful, people are taking the lead in demanding and getting the events that they want at the places they want. This is a true Web 2.0 application where users create the content. This also provides event organizers an idea on the types of turnout they can expect.
This has been a very useful tool for politicians. As of today, 57,609 people are demanding Barack Obama rally in their home towns. Political event co-ordinators are leveraging on Web 2.0 and tools like eventful.com to plan their campaign stops. In another instance, RonPaul raised over 5 million dollars in a single quarter with help of various web 2.0 tools. As Web 2.0 applications mature and the popularity grows, the way Political campaigns will be co-ordinated and managed in the future will be widely influenced by these tools.
