With the use of artificial intelligence and blockchain technologies, Web 3.0 is the next step in the evolution of the internet allowing it to process data with near-human intelligence. that provides users with their relevant choices.
Between the years 1991-2004, the internet was mostly a bunch of static pages meaning whenever you loaded them they just showed some stuff and that was it. Web 1.0 was all read-only content, there was not any logging in or interacting with posts or viewing analytics. Most of the early internet wasn’t even profitable by ads, it was mostly just like one big Wikipedia page. At the time people used the internet to consume information.
In 2004 web 2.0 came into the picture, it made the internet much more interactive. this is the biggest change in the evolution of the internet at the time. By interacting with the pages, web pages started collecting information from us. Our data is collected by all these centralized companies like Facebook and Google. They realized they could package all the data they had collected on us and sell it to advertisers.
It is the age of lack of privacy for users and also targeted advertising. to be fair most of them are willing to give up this privacy too for apps like Facebook and Instagram.
In 2.0 two persons could both view facebook.com and see two very different news feeds because the page depended on who was viewing it. The content of your feed is the company sorting data by the information you gave them like likes and how much you watched a video. But if you look at the ads that they show you that is them sorting data by the information you gave them.
When you go to school every day at 8 a.m except for Saturdays they knew that,
When you went to go eat chicken last night they knew that.
One centralized company controlling all this data is scary.
Is there any way that can get rid of the loopholes of the current web 2.0?
Yes, there are many ways to do that. using Tor browser, incognito mode, etc. But there can be fluctuations in their reliability and also these are not permanent solutions. But this scenario can be changed for everyone using the internet with help of web 3.0.
WEB 3.0 is the next phase in the evolution of the internet. It utilizes blockchain technology and the tools of decentralization. In web 3.0 some believe that you will be the owner of your content the stuff that you post online unlike web 2.0 where you were the product as you were browsing social networks. Now this is kind of true, so if you want a post to stay up it’ll stay up, they say in web 3.0 you can control it.
Key Factors of Web 3.0
2. Trustful and Permissionless
Blockchain will help to centralize the data store. web 3.0 allows information to be retrieved based on its content while also establishing trust in the virtual world. Decentralization will dismantle the vast databases currently maintained by internet giants like Facebook and google giving more power over people, by keeping data in several locations simultaneously
2. Trustful and Permissionless
Web 3.0 will be trustful and permissionless which means that participants will be able to interact directly without the need for a trusted intermediary or permission from a governing body. Due to this, you can access any data relevant to your choice without any permission from any other node or 3rd party for example if you are researching for some data you don’t need to provide any sort of details or you don’t need to accept its cookies.
DIGITAL IDENTITY IS NOT CONNECTED
One of the biggest changes in WEB 3.0 is not 100% connected to your real-world identity. This means you can make purchases, download things, view pages do any other activity on the internet without being traced to the real you.
REALITY OF WEB 3.0
In the next decade, we might be able to products from Amazon by using decentralized applications and pay with cryptocurrencies, or In one of your friend’s posts, you could leave a like anonymously using one of your hidden wallets.
It is not going to be a bunch of life-changing stuff all at once. It’ll likely be serious of ideas that grow together until Decentralization grows to replace centralized companies like Facebook and Google. Visit Adhoc Softwares website to read more technical blogs.
