Synchronising Personal Data with Web 2.0 Data Sources

An increasing amount of personal data is being published on Web 2.0 sites such as Facebook and Flickr as well as various forms of discussion forums and blogs. These sites provide easy-to-use solutions for sharing data with friends and user communities, and consumers of that data can contribute to the body of information through actions such as tagging, linking and writing comments. Sometimes, Web 2.0 sites also take over the primary role of managing a user's personal data by providing simple tools for creating, storing, organising and retrieving data, even when users are on the move. Desktop applications for multimedia processing such as Adobe Photoshop Light room provide tools to support the publishing process.
