While the ubiquitous term “Web 2.0” refers to the next generation of the web – an increasingly social entity due to social media and networking sites like Twitter, YouTube, and of course Facebook – the question on many minds is how the web will evolve with the introduction of Open Graph and whether it will now become one big social network.
