Web 1.0 –> Web 2.0 –> Web 3.0

After having read the article What is Web 2.0  written by Tim O’Reilly, I ended up a little bit confuse about the definition on the term. So, I decided to read more about the definition along with learning what these terms, Web 1.0 and Web 3.0 mean.

Web 1.0 is basically the first stage of the World Wide Web. the firs generation of internet sites that primarily provided information. People where able to explore webpages with hyperlinks, but they were hard to make websites . Therefore, it was extremely high for the average person to create content or be able to voice their opinion

In 2004, Web 2.0 has been introduced as a social web, which made it easier for everyone to create a website where they can talk about anything they want with anyone they want. People now are able to interact throughout sites like Facebook. The community can write, discuss and comment. It is so easy for anyone to participate on the internet on any topic.

The web 2.0 is a social media

Blogging on WordPress, micro blogging on Twitter is a way to give people information or get information from others. Another social media can be Youtube, they can talk about videos. And Facebook can talk about pictures. In this Web 2.0 the users are essential. This is because without people writting or posting on the sites, they will be no interaction on sites. Therefore, users are responsible to produce the content.

The web 3.0 is the next step of intelligent omnipresent, a continuation on existing techniques. Here, the computers can understand the meaning behind information, they can learn what we are infested in. Then help us better finned what we are looking for. This is what the semantic web, web 3.0 is all about.It can recognize people, places, companies, produces and more. Also it can understand the relationship between things. In other words, its a recommendment system that make a personal approach by the webstte possible. For example, Amazon offers the clients the products that other people with the same interest bought before them. Last fm is a site where you can listen online music. By using smart systems, this sites are in the continuing learning process and they anticipate what their users like or dislike.

    An important element in the transition from web 1.0 to 2.0 was the development and widespread usage of RSS. This syndication technology made it possible for bloggers and podcasters to easily reach audience. Also the commenting aspect on blogs helped to create a sense of two way communication between content producer and user.

    As for your speculation on 3.0, it’s hard to know what will come next. I’m curious about how you came up with these predictions. Were you influenced by anything you read? If so a link to such sources would have been useful.
