Different Versions Of Web
Before we start telling you about Web 3.0, you should know about Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 so that you can easily understand the things of Web 3.0. Let's first know these two-
Web 1.0 was invented in 1989 and became popular in 1993 and lasted till 1999. In Web 1.0, the website used to be just static. Static means that you can only view it and apart from that you cannot do anything on it.
At that time, you could only read information on the Internet, apart from this, you could neither create an account on any site nor comment on anyone's post. At that time there was no social media website either. It has become very outdated and when you see it, you will call it useless. For example, you can see the image below.
Web 1.0's website used to be something in which you can't do anything. You can only read or view what is on the Website.
Web 2.0 was invented around 2000, and it is still going on. Websites started getting better in Web 2.0. In this, users started getting the option to create an account and comment on any type of content, even they can also rate their experience on a particular website.
Web 2.0 also gave growth to many social media companies such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Users can create their accounts by visiting all these websites, where they can post their content, and along with it they can also see the content of other people and give their reaction and comment on it.
One thing about all the things is that in Web 2.0 the website started becoming dynamic and interactive. It has also taken the online store business i.e. eCommerce business a lot forward.
Web 3.0, which is called "Web Two Point O" in the language of Tech, is the future of the Internet, which is a bit difficult for some people to understand, but in some ways it is right and in some ways, it is also wrong.
We will explain the advantages and disadvantages of Web 3.0 a little below in this article, let us first understand what Web 3.0 is and how it is different from Web 1.0 and Web 2.0-
What is Web 3.0: Web 3.0 is the third version of the web in which the user will be the owner of his own content and all the content posted on the Internet and will be able to keep all his data on his own device.
In the language of technology, it is also called the decentralized web. About this, Tech Experts believes that after Web 3.0, you will be able to manage your data yourself and apart from this, only some companies or some people will not be able to manage your data.
For example, We use Facebook and WhatsApp daily. We also give a lot of data i.e. information to Facebook and WhatsApp like name, birthday, and many more things. All these companies use all these data to earn money. Some company earns money from us by showing the publicity of our choice, on the other hand, some company also sells our data, due to which it is misused.
Have you ever wondered who gave these companies the right to sell our data? And who gave the right to these few selected companies to become the owner of our data?
No one has. But without our data, no company can be formed or run. Web 3.0 is being used to overcome this problem.
Features Of Web 3.0
Till now, you learned what is Web 3.0, but without knowing its features, it is complicated to understand it, so let's understand its features as well:
