What Makes a Website "Interactive"
An interactive website is a two-way process. A user does something then the website responds. A user asks a question - the website answers. A user enters some information - the website saves it.
Behind the scenes, interactive websites need a database and some programs that intelligently "do" what you want/need the website to do. Innovative, new ways to use website interactivity are being discovered all the time.
Some of the most common uses are:
Many members with a common interest share information, produce user-generated content, discuss issues and support each other. Examples include Mumsnet, Facebook, and to a certain extent LinkedIn.
People buy products and services online. There are many standard eCommerce packages available, but many business need to add richer, more interactive intelligence to their online store. Examples include John Lewis and Marks & Spencer.
People use the website just like they would use software on their PC, except it's online. This is often referred to as cloud or "software as a service". Examples include SalesForce and webmail.
Multiple buyers and sellers come together in one safe, efficient environment. Examples include eBay, Amazon Marketplace, Etsy, and even dating sites.
