The difference between Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0

The Internet, as the dominant source of information, has undergone continuous evolution. Search engines are the primary way to access the Internet and the World Wide Web (web). The internet is a network of connected computers where the web resides. The web is a network of static web pages with their own addresses.

Web 1.0 refers to the Internet’s earliest form. It has to do with a global network of early IT-literate people writing content on web pages for the rest of the world. Web1 was about users getting on the Internet to get information by reading web pages. This gives rise to communication and information sharing in the future.

In Web 2.0, users are more interactive and collaborative. It is the user-generated web, created by reading, writing, and creating content on social media platforms for end users. Web2 characteristics are websites and applications with extensive communication channels, dynamic content, standards, and scalability.

As for Web 3.0, it is the decentralised web, the next generation of the Internet. Web3 hosts blockchain-powered applications and operates on a token economy. With the features of previous web versions included, Web3 is also secure, with users having better control and ownership of their data.

Other key features of Web3 are the use of next level technologies such as semantic web, 3D graphics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence. From these, users get relevant content, instead of just what other end users provide. Web3 is and will be a powerful force shaping the future of the Internet.
