The newest age of the Internet has begun.
Over the past five years or so, we have heard a lot about "Web 2.0" and the effect it has had on how users interact with the Internet. Web 2.0 technologies enabled people to have much greater interaction with web sites and led to much richer experiences with the online world. In our last post, we covered how the mobile Internet is bringing about changes in how customers interact with physical businesses. This next step in the evolution of the Internet, made possible by the fruits of Web 2.0, has no name yet (except the uninspired "Web 3.0"), so we'll just call it The New Web. We believe this will be the third age of the Internet.
While change is often difficult to cope with, The New Web will offer many opportunities for existing businesses. It's highly doubtful that The New Web will cause the walls of brick & mortar businesses to come crumbling down. Instead, these walls will become an integral part of The New Web. Businesses must adapt to these changes in order to avoid being left in the dust and losing potential customers.
