User-generated content (UGC) refers to a variety of media content available in a range of modern communications technologies. UGC is often produced through Open collaboration: it is created by goal-oriented yet loosely coordinated participants, who interact to create a product (or service) of economic value, which they make available to contributors and non-contributors alike. The term entered mainstream usage during 2005, having arisen in web publishing and new media content production circles[citation needed].
