Web 3.0, Web 4.0… What to expect after Web 2.0?

After getting used to Netscape and Google, what can we expect from the next Internet generation?

Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 already went through some major changes. As Web 1.0 was a taxonomic system, also known as a classification system, while Web 2.0 is a folksonomy: this allows its users to find information and classify then. Not only this, Web 2.0 is a social, peer 2 peer and crowd-sourced system, where Web 1.0 is more information based, focuses on target markets and hard copyright.

Moreover, Web 2.0 describes an open source environment. It asks you to interact with today’s social media. Flickr and Wikipedia, for example, are two of many open source websites.

So, what can be expect from Web 3.0 and further when we ‘just’ got used to Web 2.0? Web 3.0 definitely will step up in the future technology. Posting to the internet, the use of big data and an upgrade in the accessibility on the web.

In this article:http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/what-comes-after-web-20/ the author is talking about virtual worlds and using 3D glasses. We already see some of that new, futuristic technology these days, but when will we see these features in the world of the Internet?

Hopefully in a couple years time we are going to see a change in the World Wide Web system!

  1. In response to what you have written, no one really does know what is going to be next. I can say though and maybe a piece of advice for everyone that we should always be alert and never get comfortable to web environment we live in today. Its always going to be changing for the better and and for the worst but we have to be ready for it.

  2. For me, after Web 1.0 and Web 2.0, it’s hard to say we haven’t already experience instances of Web 3.0 or Web 4.0. I feel as if we are living in a digital era that has seen numerous changes that never cease to stop. What I mean by that is, can we really say we are transitioning into something such as Web 3.0 when technology is seemingly ever-changing. I can’t physically break down the end of Web 2.0 and the beginning of Web 3.0, and that’s why I sort of feel that at this point, the current Web is not unconditional.

  3. This is a very interesting post. I wonder what kind of web/tech environment our grandchildren will grow up with. It is hard for us to remember a time before this one in the web age, and a drastic change to the web can be around the corner, but I honestly think that we will be fine in adjusting to such a change because we were the first generation to grow up with a heavy use of the internet and gadgets, we experienced these things develop and experienced their many changes.
