Internet becomes the fundamental economic instrument in today's life, consumer are entirely depend on network services and Business depend on internet services.
All are aware of basic usage of internet and how it is evolving day by day.One might confuse with the terms Web 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0.
Web generations 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 are the terms used to abbreviate the Web/Internet generations.
The change in the generations required as:

  • unstructured data and resources, and it wasn't fully usable to average user's.
  • explosive growth in Internet data traffic, especially video
  • virtual and mobile Internet experiences
  • Online video traffic, including data rich 3-D and high-definition transmissions

Well, Web 1.0 also known as 'dot com', first generation of web began with the hyperlinks between the webpages.Everyone has their personal own title, single person updation and can be think of informational portal. There were only static pages instead of dynamic user-generated content with framesets and tables to position and align elements on page.
Webpages contains text/graphics, images and other multimedia files, hyperlinks are used to navigate between them.
Web 1.0 lack of context, interaction scalability and no user data available.

Web 2.0, the second generation focuses on power of community, allows information sharing with a social media, Interoperability(the ability to exchange and use information (usually in a large heterogeneous network made up of several local area networks), user-generated content in a virtual community, search for information through keywords and make user data available.Web 2.0 is lack of personalization, up to mark portability, interoperability.
Examples of Web 2.0 include social networking sites, blogs, folksonomies,  video sharing sites, mashups, web applications, hosted services and wikis.

Web 3.0 is Semantic web, organizes information in a more logical way or natural language so that software agents can read and use them to share and integrate.
"It's a collection of data resources that are interconnected and speak the same language"
In a more simple way, Semantic Web makes search engine much smarter and search engine will understand who you are, what you've been doing, and where you'd like to go next.
It's like asking for personal assistance that "Find me a shop within 100 miles that are 24*7 and if any contact details available than add it to my address book"
Wow sounds GREAT!
