I don't really use a lot of Web 2.0 applications. I tend to browse various Blogs for pleasure, and I use search engines, etc. for work and study, but other than that, I rarely use Web 2.0. However, I do use Skype. Last year, I had a number of friends who were studying abroad and it was a great way to keep in contact with them. When I was feeling particularly lazy, I also used it to contact my housemates. It's free and unlimited, providing you have an internet connection. You can instant message, video call, or conference call. You can also attach documents and share information. I avoid putting too much information about myself online, hence my limited use of Web 2.0 applications, but I think Skype is fairly safe and secure.
