Advertising 2.0 explains how the advent of the Web 2.0 fundamentally changes advertising (and marketing) and provides an overview of what the opportunities, challenges and pitfalls for advertisers and marketers on different Web 2.0 platforms are.

In order to be effective in the Web 2.0 era, advertising has to change its traditional top-down approach to become more inclusive and interactive ("social", if you like) by inviting consumers to participate and engage. Based on this diagnosis, largely self-contained book chapters deal with how consumer engagement can be achieved (or not) using social networks, virtual worlds, social news/bookmarking, citizen-generated advertising, online reviews, alternate reality games and gaming platforms. The final chapter deals with measuring impact and return on investment (ROI) of We 2.0 advertising.

Advertising 2.0 is more of a theoretical textbook on advertising and the Web 2.0 than a hands-on guide for advertisers, limited to providing general analysis and insights. It covers the most popular social media platforms (Facebook and YouTube, but not Twitter) and less-mainstream social media, such as (declining) virtual worlds and alternate reality gaming, in equal importance, which may make it less relevant for certain categories of readers.

Negative points include at times excessive repetitiveness of ideas and concepts (to some extent due to the self-contained nature of the chapters), too long paragraphs, which make reading at times difficult, as well as sourcing of examples and research largely limited to the North America - making the book less insightful to international advertisers and/or readers.

Highlights include the coverage of marketing with social news/bookmarking communities and citizen advertising.

Overall, a limited yet useful book for readers interested in research and analysis of advertising in the Web 2.0 world - but no more.

Tuten is some one to keep on your radar 6 Sep 2010
By Karen Gardiner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This a smart book by a very smart author. Though it's been years since I was in college, I appreciate her approach which lays out the how and why of social media and how marketers can use it to sell products, services and causes. If you are looking for a text to help you understand how social media marketing has evolved then get this book. Living through media changes doesn't mean you'll understand what has been happening. This book will give the answers to many of your questions.

A Complex overview of Web 2.0 18 Dec 2009
By Belinda Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I did not resonate with this book. It is not a "how to" guide, but rather a textbook. Far too intellectual take on Web 2.0, but that's just my opinion.

From the back cover of the book:
"Every day, print and online trade magazines and news sources tout developments in online advertising, branding, and marketing. Seismic shifts in the industry have forced marketers and advertisers, ready or not, to employ new advertising models. But the potholes for advertisers using Web 2.0 are many, and missteps by companies that don't understand the new rules of the game guarantee lost time and money ill spent. Advertising 2.0 ensures that readers understand the advertising options possible in the Web 2.0 environment, provide examples of companies using these options, and offers guidelines for their application."
