Web 3.0 is already among us, it is a new trend that affects the way people connect to the Internet, in addition to its social impact today. Technology tends more and more to transform human relationships, bringing new paths, manifestations and knowledge.
Making a simple comparison of times, we can see that the characteristic hyperlinks of Web 1.0, 2.0 occur in social networks and 3.0 is based on blockchain technology, which allows the creation of blocks, forming a data chain. This tool is mainly known for serving as the foundation for cryptocurrencies, which makes it ultra-technical and a Web 2.0 plugin.
In this third wave of the Internet, known as the “intelligent web”, social networks begin to play a different role. Before being used for entertainment, sales or enhancing the digital reputation of an uncompromising brand, it has now acquired the stamp of independence and social assistance.
Three main concepts characterize this development, decentralization, which generates independence from banks, government organizations or corporate technologies. Virtualization, which is the expansion of digital worlds and the reproduction of real experiences in a virtual way. And privacy, which prevents personal data from being exposed, seeks to escape targeted advertising and tracking hassles.
However, we can see that the use of technology for mental well-being, health and human development is increasing, particularly in Web 3.0, which is having a significant social impact and is crucial for the people who use it. they need.
In addition, in this new era, social support networks have developed that have built communities that connect people from all over the world with common interests and are able to exchange information, experiences and cultures. Within the “smart grid”, it is known that we can use technology as a tool for new knowledge, participating virtually in yoga, meditation and music classes, learning to play new instruments or evez improving cooking techniques.
The effects of this exchange of experiences in society are the most positive, because it generates new learning, which is why many people seek professional guidance on their problems, or change their habits, and value their well-being.
The new era aims to take advantage of time, improve the autonomy of machines, become an enhancer of lifestyle, which is why it is linked to the social and helps the process of self-knowledge and human development.
Particularly after the pandemic, we have been able to see the spread of online counseling and services, saving time and travel, especially for those who live in hard-to-reach places. In particular, I believe that this new era is very important, not only because of the appreciation of mental, emotional and physical care, but also because of the technology itself associated with these new issues.
