Web 3.0 - What it is and why you should care about it

The World Wide Web (known as the Web) is considered the world's fastest growing publication medium. To remain competitive, it is important to keep pace with technological change. 


The Web is growing and evolving in its own way. It has evolved from Web 1.0 of static information properties to Web 2.0 of interactive experience. The next phase of web evolution, Web 3.0, is already underway. 

Web 3.0 becomes referred to as an integrated web experience. In this experience, machines can understand and catalog data in the same way that humans can. In this blog, we'll talk about what Web 3.0 is and how it has changed things on the Internet. Let's get started!

What is Web 3.0?

Twitter co-founder Ev Williams coined the term "Web 3.0". It describes the next step in the evolution of the web. It goes beyond Web 2.0 and represents a new form of the Internet in which people are seamlessly connected in ways that can't even be imagined today. At Web 3.0 is about the meaningful link between people and things.


The characteristics of the Web 3.0 are more efficient use of data and resources, more complex applications, and a range of new tools for content creation and consumption.

According to Ev Williams. Web 3.0 the next stage in the evolution of the Internet. In his opinion, people are moving away from a world in which users choose between different types of applications to one in which users have the option of interacting with multiple services simultaneously.


Web 3.0 is about also about how people interact with technology and each other. It's about using technology to connect people, data and devices in new and more seamless ways than ever before. The Web 3.0 will revolutionize how we connect with technology at home and at work.

The evolution from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 & the evolution from Web 2.0 to Web 3.0

Web 1.0 represents the first updated version of the Web, which Berners-Lee calls the "read-only Web."


The very first phase of the development of the World Wide Web is referred to as Web 1.0. In Web 1.0, there were only a few content producers, while the vast majority of users were content customers. 


Websites around the world that emphasize user-generated content, interoperability, and end-user functionality are known as Web 2.0. It is also known as the participatory social web and does not refer to a change in technical specifications.
