Evolution of the Web and Neopets

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of LeapFish Inc. All opinions are 100% mine.

This is an interesting video about the evolution of the web from its beginnings in 1995 to the launch of things like Google, blogs, Facebook, and Twitter. The most recent addition is about leapfish, which is all about the new web that is the living web. The living web is about real time stuff like conversations and sharing having more balance than the old search engine way of crawling and optimizing. This means things like Facebook and Tweets are taken into account and more recent relevant stuff is more easily found.

Neopets is a great example of how the evolution of the web becomes more the living web, such as with the most recent plot that is going on. With the living web and more real time things like conversations and tweets taking more prominence the plots have gotten a lot easier to stay on top of, although since it is still with most search engines about crawling and optimizing the time sensitive steps like the recent rock release that many missed out on since it was only available for 6 hours was missed. I was even on briefly during that, but did not get the note on how to do the step until the next day because you have to really know where to look instead of being able to just search. The new living web also adds a whole new interactive dimension of community with others online and seeing videos of different things that make it easier to know what to do.
