You’ve probably heard the term “Web 2.0”, but you may also have heard terms like “Web 3.0” or the more recent “Web 4.0” and you are not sure what each of them is referring to.
Web 4.0 is characterized, among other things, by the use of artificial intelligence and voice commands
In short, they are nothing more than Words that reflect the development of the Internet and how the mode of use has changed. In summary, let’s see what each of these terms used would refer to:
-Web 1.0To start with, Internet users have only one role: they need to use the information hosted on computer servers. The navigation was purely textual and the consultations are very limited. When the web programming language HTML (Hyper TextMarkup Language) is displayed, the organization of the elements that are displayed on the screen becomes more attractive. However, the interactions were still very limited as, for example, the user could only read the information and not comment.
-Web 2.0: Around the year 2000, Web 2.0 was talked about by promoting interaction between websites and users. The Internet is understood as a collaborative platform in which all users participate. In addition to reading, Internet users can now generate information and publish it on websites, user forums, blogs, social networks and wikis (pages editable by any user).
-Web 3.0: It refers to the fact that web pages can be semantically linked by adding metadata that adds value to the information and improves search and the ability to find information on the web by understanding the meaning of the words.
-Web 4.0: The Internet can work proactively and not only receive commands from users, but also use artificial intelligence to anticipate their needs and even predict future behavior. Voice interactions are also widespread due to the use of intelligent devices that enable spoken searches.
