Web 2.0 Awards for 2008

SEOmoz’s Web 2.0 awards is an interesting place to discover new social media resources. Now my first question was, naturally, how did they select their winners? In their own words:

After scouring the web for Web 2.0 sites both new and old, we developed a “short list” of over three-hundred sites in forty-one categories. From there, we had some of the web’s best bloggers, entrepreneurs and business people vote on winners, narrowing the field to 174 place-getters and Honorable Mentions.

I’d discovered the first place winner under “Philanthropy” already (yay!) but hadn’t heard of either Giveness or the fascinating DonorsChoose (a resource specifically for teachers and classrooms).

Another finding of note: according to these awards, Twitter beat out Facebook under Social Networking mainstays.
