Before 1999, the Internet was known as the “Read-Only” network, according to scholars. The function of the average internet user was limited to reading what was introduced to him. Millions of static websites exploded after the dotcom boom, and these are the best examples of the 1.0 web era (which eventually has led to the dotcom bubble). There was no active contact or knowledge flow between the information user and the manufacturer (of the information). The knowledge era, on the other hand, has begun!
The “read-only site,” according to Tim Berners-Lee, was the first implementation of the Web, represented by Web 1.0. To put it another way, the early web-enabled users search for and read the content. There was very little user engagement or contribution to the material.
The first shopping cart apps, which most e-commerce website owners now use in some way or another, are classified as Web 1.0. The overarching aim was to introduce the merchandise to prospective buyers in the same way as a catalog or brochure would, but that vendors will now have a way for everyone (from anywhere in the world) to buy (their) products via a website.
Web 2.0 resulted from the lack of active contact between everyday people and the Internet. With notable contributions from LiveJournal (launched in April 1999) and Blogger, 1999 marked the beginning of a Read-Write-Publish period (Launched in August 1999). Using various blog sites, even non-technical users can now freely engage and connect to the site. According to Berners-definition, the Web 2.0, or the “read-write” Web, can contribute content and communicate with other web users. Lee’s The Web’s ecosystem has been significantly altered as a result of this engagement and contribution. It has a lot more promise than we can see right now. Web 2.0 continues to be a welcome answer to web users’ need for more control of the content they have access to.
This century introduced new ideas to the average person, such as blogs, social media, and video streaming. It’s just a few clicks away from publishing your content! Twitter, YouTube, EzineArticles, Flickr, and Facebook, are some of the most notable Web 2.0 inventions.
Depending on who you ask, there are several different perspectives on Web 2.0.
Developers have a much stricter understanding of Web 2.0 than normal web users, which can cause misunderstanding [but I won’t get into that].
This adds to the rumblings and mumblings about Web 3.0 that we’ve been reading. Web 3.0 will be a “read-write-execute” web, according to Tim Berners-descriptions. Lee’s However, since this is impossible to visualize in its abstract sense, let’s look at two ideas that would underpin Web 3.0: semantic markup and web services.
The connectivity distance between human web users and computerized applications is referred to as semantic markup. One of the most significant management difficulties of delivering information on the Internet was that web apps couldn’t give meaning to data and therefore didn’t know what was important and what wasn’t. Although this is all in the works, the concept of formatting data so that digital agents can comprehend it contributes to the “execute” part of our description and a way to communicate about web services.
A web server is a software interface that allows computers to communicate with each other over the Internet. Thousands of online sites are currently open. They do, though, take center stage in the sense of Web 3.0. Web 3.0 promises the opportunity for apps that can communicate explicitly to each other and for wider searches for knowledge across simplified frameworks through integrating semantic markup and web services.
How, when, and when will Web 3.0 be implemented? Kate Ray has produced an excellent documentary on web 3.0 that discusses why we need a semantic web and what it’s all about.
In Web 2.0, it seems that we got everything we wanted, but it lags well behind when it comes to intelligence. Perhaps a six-year-old child’s intellectual skills are/were superior to current search technologies! Web 2.0 keyword searches culminated in a knowledge overload.
Since we aren’t quite there (yet), developers and users have invented a “cheap” way of recontextualizing the search issue. Will Google Withstand the Spam Pressure? is a blog post I wrote about it.
Only because a website doesn’t use Web 2.0 features doesn’t mean it’s no longer important. After all, a small e-commerce platform selling specialty goods may not have a business need for users to upload content or engage with one another.
The next move is an alternative iteration of what we currently have, rather than a different version. The Web had to adjust to its new mobile setting. Network 4.0 creates real-time communications between all computers in the physical and virtual worlds.
While Web 5.0 is still in its early stages of development, the first signs suggest that Web 4.0 5.0 would be about an interconnected web that interacts with us in the same way that we interact with each other (like a personal assistant). Web 4.0 5.0 is referred to as a “symbiotic” web. This Web would be incredibly strong and well-functioning. The read-write-execution-concurrency Web will be Web 4.0 5.0.
The (emotional) relationship between humans and machines will be the focus of Web 5.0. Based on neurotechnology, many individuals will begin to communicate regularly. For the time being, the site remains “emotionally” indifferent, which means it does not understand its people’s thoughts and emotions. This will improve with the release of Web 5.0, also known as the emotional Web. www.wefeelfine.org is an example of this since it charts people’s feelings. Users can engage with material that reacts to their feelings or improvements in facial recognition when wearing headphones.
Web 2.0 and other marketing methods are excellent, but strong definitions are scarce and unproven. There is, for example, the world’s first web-based discussion system.
