Web 2.0 vs. Web 3.0: What’s the Difference?
Here’s another discussion of Web 3.0, with a comparison of this new technology, compared with Web 2.0.
To put things into better perspective, Web 1.0 gave us the wide dissemination of information over the World Wide Web–the Internet. But it was a static medium: we could only get content from providers by visiting their websites. There was no way to interact with the site or other site visitors.
Then came Web 2.0, the world of Smartphones and interactive social media apps and websites. Now we could interact with others as well as just consume information.
Web 3.0 opens up new vistas for us. It actually changes the infrastructure of the Internet by decentralizing it. Based on the blockchain concept, the Internet now becomes a decentralized network with no central authority. It’s a peer-to-peer network, run by many separate entities and servers.
