Social media has been around for a while now, but with sites like MySpace and Facebook, we’ve seen a real increase in Web 2.0 in the past 18 months.
Which begs the question – what will the web look like in the next 5-10 years?
Now, think back 5 years.Â What were you doing on the web?Â Me, I was all about message boards and updating my sites on Geocities.Â I think by that time it was Yahoo! Geocities.Â But I couldn’t imagine seeing videos and other streaming media becoming a staple on many web pages.Â Forms of blogging were around, Live Journal was the big one.Â But the word “blog” certainly wasn’t a household name.
When I think about what’s sure to become big in the next 10 years, I automatically go to video.Â Of course, video already plays a big role in Web 2.0.Â How will we use it in Web 3.0?Â Web 4.0?Â What kinds of interactivity will we be looking at?
And with the potential for all this new media to develop – how will it influence SEO?
