mitmach-web
participatory Web


Explanation:
one option
see e.g.

The concept of Web-as-participation-platform captures many of these characteristics. Bart Decrem, a founder and former CEO of Flock, calls Web 2.0 the "participatory Web"[11] and regards the Web-as-information-source as Web 1.0.

interactive web


Explanation:
I'd use "intereactive" for "mitmach-" per se. Yes, of course the earlier generation of web technology is also referred to with the term "interactive".

I have found information on "folksonomy", also known as collaborative tagging, social classification, social indexing...and the use of terms and technologies such as "social software". Depending on the context, the term you are looking for may simply be social or collaborative.
