What’s the difference between Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0

Web 1.0

It’s kind of “read-only” web where you can only read the Internet pages. There is minimum user’s interaction who can only search and read information which was put there by the web-site’s managers/creators. It was initiated because of the business’s need to represent it’s product by the easy way, where the user could have an access in any time he wanted to. Since 90th the Internet became much more mainstream and new way for people to communicate (e-mailing and chatting) and do research for some school projects, for example, via dial-up connection. The advantage of the Web 1.0 is the professionalism of the creators/copywriters/content managers.

Web 2.0

It’s a “read and write” web where users interact with the Internet, it’s a collaboration of both of them. As an example, You tube, Facebook and My space illustrate the meaning of this kind of web. The users are involved to contribute their submissions which provide the “life” of this web. It a social networking, where the community is creator and user at the same time. The “democratic” nature of the Web 2.0 allows users to tag, link or comment on the content of the web-pages. The disadvantage of this kind of web is absence of the responsibility on the information users are present/locate on the web space.

Web 3.0

It’s a new age Internet technology which provides broader search for information through simpler interfaces. It’s called “Semantic Web” by the inventor of the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee. It provides a higly specialized search of the information user are looking for. For instance, there is an ability to make a complex question which is analyzing by the search engine and all possible alternatives are organising. Web 3.0 creates the collection of databases which can be connected on demand. However, inspite on the convenience of the research, there is a possibility to get not accurate result.
