Web 2.0 has become the 1 millionth word in the dictionary.
But just as Web 2.0 has become commonplace, people have started looking forward to Web 3.0 and to what the internet of the future will look and feel like. Thinking about where the technology is going gives us an opportunity to start planning now.
My Web 3.0 Trends & Predictions
- How you will use it ?
Stop thinking about the web being something you need a computer to use. It’s started already with the iPhone, even now people are spending huge amounts of money on products and services using phones. Just last week potn.com received an order for a £1000 set of wheels, which was placed using a phone and PayPal. In the next 5 years mobile phones will become the primary method of interacting with the Internet.
- Single Log In?
Open ID is a technology that’s growing quickly and being adopted by Google, Facebook and every other hi profile tech company. What this technology will do is allow you to log into any site on the Internet with exactly the same details. No more registering everywhere you go. By taking away the registration barrier interaction with sites is easier and will become much more common place.
- Information overload will see social marketing thriving.
The Internet is crowded already and there’s more information than you can keep up with. This will lead to more people joining groups of like minded individuals who’s recommendations will become more valuable than any advertising. Management of this information overload will become a hot topic and lead to development of radical new ways of keeping up.
- PUSH PUSH PUSH
At the minute you visit websites, but as web 3.0 kicks in you’re going to find more information pushed to you. In whatever form they take, subscription based services are going to take over.
