  • 1. An Analysis of Web 3.0
    Tania Gabbay & SajidIqbal
  • 2. What is Web 3.0?
    The 3rd decade of the web – it’s a period in time; it’s not a specific technology
    Nova Spivack, founder and CEO of Radar Networks (allbusiness.com)
    Highly specialized information silos, moderated by a cult of personality, & validated by the community
    Steve Spaulding (howtosplitanatom.com)
  • 3. Groupon = Web 3.0
    Improved online shopping experience
    Various deals organized by location
    Each deal page includes reviews, map, link to company website, link to Twitter & Facebook multiple utilities in one central location
    Online life intertwined with real life
    Discounts: the Internet becomes the better choice, not simply the more convenient one
    The company builds on the networking technique introduced by Web 2.0 with greater “sophistication” and “utility”
    Online shopping becomes a three-dimensional experience
  • 4. What’s Next?
    The Internet will become intertwined with our reality
    Our virtual lives will not be supplemental to our actual lives, but rather, the two will be dependent on one another
    Groupon represents Web 3.0 because of its ability to combine and enhance aspects of Web 2.0, and provide a more prevalent, relevant outcome
    However, Groupon must develop further
    Right now, small businesses see more profits
    Competitors (i.e., Living Social, similar sites in other countries )
  • 5. What’s Missing?
    Social norms
    Dependence on Internet is limited
    People have difficulty spending large sums of $ online, therefore limiting spectrum of deals
    More comfort in social networking alone
    Variety of deals
    Big businesses have lower return rate to the site
    More nationwide deals (i.e., Gap deal = $11 million in 1 day)
  • 6. A Global Phenomenon?
    Groupon serves deals to more than 33 countries world wide.
    But, it is more specific to USA.
    There is obviously potential for growth on worldly scale, BUT because of the rapidly changing nature of the Internet, we will never truly know. Something could come along tomorrow that would completely change the dynamicsof Web 3.0 & Groupon success.
  • 7. Pros & Cons
    Pros:
    Encourages/requires interaction with outside world
    Places greater value on necessity of the Internet
    Cons:
    Can we become completely consumed by our online life?
    Will businesses continue providing deals?
