Web 1.0-3.0 and the differences

Posted: March 16, 2011 in Social media

The shift from web 1.0 to 3.0 to me, seems to have involved a lot of change requiring a fair amount of time and effort by innovative individuals seeking to make their internet experiences better for them and others. The biggest change recorded and displayed to date that I have noted from web 1.0 to 2.0 is the added ability for normal individuals to information share with others,shifting from a one-many to a many-many situation, creating a decentralisation of website content, where the users are also the “creators”.

Web 2.0 to 3.0 becomes more of a gray area as no one really knows what it will be like, but with that said some of the obvious things that will flourish when you think about what you would like to change about web 2.0, are the increased ability to search in a more “contextual” or customised way, and the ability to have the same access and information shared around with other sites. As we all have found out even with using a web 2.0 search engine(Google), you’re splashed with more information than required, which means more time searching and refining than using the required information. In a hypothetical web 3.0 search engine, it would be based on contextual searches to give the user the added ability to type in whole sentences and receive information pertaining to the query, such as if you wanted a new battery pack for your HP pavilion notebook under a hundred dollars from a store in your country, you would simply type “Need a HP battery pack from a store in New Zealand under $100”. Web 3.0 will also enable users to access sites with the same password and login and sharing information between them all. Even though web 3.0 is still a very grey area with a lot of assumption, stuff like what has been mentioned characterise what web 3.0 would most likely include.
