Web 3.0 Trends

By Paul Silli

Many consider Web 3.0 to be a change in the way websites are created and how people interact with them. Web 2.0 universally is viewed as how people collaborate and share information online while using social networks and other interactive services such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter…

Here are some Web 3.0 features according to ScienceLab 2011:

  • There is Real-time Data: Information is moving faster online today than it has ever been. Breaking news stories occur on Twitter and Real-time searches allow users to get the latest information within seconds by the touch of a keypad.
  • Searches Online: Programmers are trying to teach computers to better understand people so they will know what we mean when we are searching online. For example, Google is developing ‘Semantic Web’ searching styles; This is when a computer understands what people are saying when they are using jargon and slang expressions.
  • Mobile & Geography: Some say geography is playing a big role in the information posted online. The rise of GPS-enabled 4G phones and small handheld devices is feeding into the Web 3.0 trend.

It took more than 10 years for Web 2.0 to catch on as an accepted industry term. I think it will take some time for people to clearly define what Web 3.0 is for consumers.

What do you think? Is Web 3.0 just another netlingo?
