- Observations of the evolution of the web
Experts call the Internet before 1999 “Read-Only” web. The average internet user’s role was limited to reading the information which was presented to him. The best examples of this 1.0 web era are millions of static websites which mushroomed during the dot-com boom (which eventually has led to the dotcom bubble). There was no active communication or information flow from consumer (of the information) to producer (of the information). But the information age was born!
the Web 1.0, could be considered as the “read-only web.
Web 2.0 partecipant determin the outcome of the expertiment, more interactive,
This era empowered the common user with a few new concepts like Blogs, Social-Media & Video-Streaming. Publishing your content is only a few clicks away! Few remarkable developments of Web 2.0 are Twitter, YouTube, eZineArticles, Flickr and Facebook.
the Web 3.0 would be a “read-write-execute” web. However, this is difficult to envision in its abstract form, so let’s take a look at two things […]that will form the basis of the Web 3.0 — semantic markup and web services.Semantic markup refers to the communication gap between human web users and computerized applications. This notion of formatting data to be understood by SOFTWARE agents leads to the “execute” portion of our definition, and provides a way to discuss web service. A web service is a SOFTWARE system designed to support computer-to-computer interaction over the Internet. By combining a semantic markup and web services, the Web 3.0 promises the potential for applications that can speak to each other directly, and for broader searches for information through simpler interfaces.
The following attributes are going to be a part of Web 3.0:
- Contextual Search
- Tailor made Search
- Personalized Search
- Evolution of 3D Web
- Why do you think the EU has a tougher regulation on internet cookies
The Cookie Law is a piece of privacy legislation that requires websites to get consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer, smartphone or tablet.
It was designed to protect online privacy, by making consumers aware of how information about them is collected and used online, and give them a choice to allow it or not.

- Check out the results of Edelman trust barometer of your country of origin
Milan 2 February 2015 – As for confidence, Italy appears in contrast with other major European countries and the world. A surprising recognition that emerges from the last edition, the fifteenth, Edelman Trust Barometer – the annual survey that measures the confidence and credibility of companies, governments, media and NGO’s made by Edelman. Trust is indeed fallen to the levels of the Great Depression of 2009: below 50% in two thirds of countries, including USA, UK, Germany and Japan. “The unimaginable events of 2014 have dispelled the confidence in the institutions,” notes Richard Edelman, president and CEO, Edelman. “The epidemic of Ebola in Africa, the plane crashes; the arrests of Chinese politicians; the difficulties of some large international banks; the missteps of some large global groups, have undermined people’s trust. ”
In Italy, last year the trust has grown to all: government (24-28%), companies (45-53%), medium (40-48%) and NGO’s (62-64% ). Of course it is very low percentages ever, especially that of the government, but the trend does not leave doubts. As for businesses, surprising the gap that exists in Italy between the credibility of the state-owned companies (35%) than that of large enterprises (52%) and those family members (71%), especially when compared to the world average: 50% the statati, 57% large, 68% of the family.
- Check out the Greenpeace vs Nestle case study (see slide 38). What did Nestle do wrong ?
Greenpeace, which is involved of environmental issues, attacks Nestlé who doesn’t have ecological practices. Greenpeace’s attacks started on Facebook, on the page of Nestlé company. But Nestlé decided to ignore the comments and delete them.
- Watch the videos in the “assumptions” section (slides 42-51) on the digital divide, long tail, cult of the amateur, technological determinism and net delusion. Summarize the main point of the video. Write up in a short paragraph what (as a communicator/ marketer) you learn from them.
These videos are about the internet, they see from different points of views, some inequalities. Indeed, even if the internet was a revolution at the time, today, internet is considering as dangerous. Meaning that internet can destroy our freedom. Some people have “the cult of the amateur” they think and communicate such as professionals also if they cannot. Today, when you search an information, you have to be careful because it could be fake. We can see the destruction of DVD economy, due to streaming. Furthermore, the access of the internet and social media is unequal. There is a really difference between develop countries and undeveloped countries.
