Exploring the Role of Social Signals in Web 3.0

Like everything else on this planet, the Web also undergoes an evolutionary process. And it is happening right before our very eyes. Right now, the beginnings of Web 3.0 are starting to unfold, along with the mysteries of how social signals would become such a integral part of the new semantic web.

What Should I Expect From Web 3.0

Web 2.0 gave users direct control over the Web and the ability to make it the way they want it to be. It meant public collaboration, information-sharing, networking, and going social. Now, Web 3.0 is another stage in the Web’s evolution that seeks to further take the web surfing experience to new heights.

It can all be summed up in one word: personalization. It is having the contents of the Web specially tailored according to your needs. For example, the social signals that a person has generated over social networking platforms can be used as parameters for search results. Let’s say you’re craving for some spicy Mexican food.

Imagine yourself accessing the Web from your smartphone and searching for “mexican food” in your phone’s mobile web browser. It then comes up with a list of choices based on the information it can pull up from your surfing history (such as likes and dislikes, location, food habits, etc) without having to input extra keywords or clicking through more pages.
