Technology the world over will continue to involve. It can never be static. When you are talking about technology, it is wide and varied. In this article, what is being considered is the technology in the wide world of the web. As it were, there are yet to be a generally accepted standard. Again, we are not considering the standards, rather what is being looked at are the different versions in vogue.
Presently, there are three versions which are hereunder listed:
Web 3.0 or better still called “Semantic Web”.
WHAT THEN IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE VERSIONS?
A critical look at each of these versions will give us insight into the difference that may be in each of them. Web 1.0: You probably might have heard about “Read Only” way back prior to 1999. This was an era, in which what the average internet user could do was to read only what information presented to him. In 1999, the evolution of Read-Write-Publish gave users the opportunity to interact. Web 3.0: You may be tempted to conclude that, all what is needed in internet technology was made available by the evolution of Web 2.0. You are quite wrong if that is the opinion you held. The evolution of Web 3.0 made web 2.0 to be far behind when it comes to what you can do on the internet. Talk of its intelligence, it is incomparable.
The attributes of Web 3.0 are listed below:
Tailor made Search
Evolution of 3D Web

Such as Blog, Social Media etc. This version enabled the users, with just a click; you have your articles published. You do not need to be a technology savvy to be able to interact and make contributions. It was a period that Bloggers are able to discuss, at times real time, and at other times, not real time. These applications are called versions. This therefore takes us to different versions that are evolving. Web 2.0: This version ensured that the defect in web 1.0 was eliminated. Interactive session between consumer and provider was enabled.
