The next generation of social networks will give communities opportunities collectively to project and make decisions and to control their implementations, to collect, concentrate and direct resources, and to settle conflicts in the Internet.
A normal effective civil society consists of many effective communities.
People unite in housing, neighborhood, town, consumer, comradely, amateur, professional, religious, class, national and other communities.
Communities help people to confront bureaucracy, regulate human relations, arbitrate disputes, aid the poor, promote talents, control the quality of consumer goods and services.
Communities reduce local and domestic crime, strengthen morality and families, and improve upbringing of children.
Communities of members of non-governmental, non-profit and charitable organizations further to creativity, culture, enlightenment, education, health, science and sports.
Communities structure a society and form the basis of political parties.
Cooperation of communities stabilizes and strengthens the whole society.
However, in reality, due to the certain historical, cultural and technological circumstances of the Western Civilization, people are divided, the quantity of communities is small, they act ineffectively.
The system of bureaucratic and legal governance of a society cannot substitute for the influence of communities and compensate for its insufficiency.
This is one of the main factors for the low efficiency of the Western Civilization.
The strong influence of communities is one of the main factors for the effectiveness of Jewish, Asian and some other ethnoses.
Other major societal problem is the organizational weakness and inefficiency of small and medium business associations, and their inability to help businesses resist the political demagocracy, the government bureaucracy, and big corporations.
Organizational vices of non-governmental, non-profit and charitable organizations cause their low efficiency. As a rule, only less than half of their donations is spended to social projects. Some organizations distribute less 10% of their budgets to targeted projects and plunder remaining resources.
Network communities are social systems. Therefore, social system experts should project social networks in which such communities are organized. However, traditionally, as a rule, computer specialists project such networks.
Therefore, Web 2.0 networks have primitive functions.
Web 2.0 networks allow users to form interest groups. However, the functionality of these groups is limited only to the dissemination of information. They are not able collectively to project and make decisions, control their implementations, collect and direct resources.
The popularity of Web 2.0 social networks has grown due to the function of search of old friends. Now, all friends have been found. So today, the demand for this function is already minimized.
At the moment, the main function of Web 2.0 social networks is simple and easy creation of typical mini Web sites.
The development of alternative ways to create and catalog personal and group websites with more functionality will reduce the popularity of Web 2.0 networks.

The scientific methodology principles
Effective rational intellectual activity requires adherence to the scientific methodology classical principles :
– The knowledge should be presented in the form of separate descriptions of properties of the investigated and/or projected objects and processes;
– Intellectual texts may not contain incorrect terms, logical contradictions and inconsistencies of facts;
– Experts and managers should evaluate the knowledge only on materials of correct discussions of controversial properties of objects between their proponents and opponents.
The vast majority of people ignore these principles.
Web 3.0 platforms will promote adherence to these principles.
Web 3.0 social effects
The Web 3.0 network will start and support the natural self-regulation mechanisms and processes in a society.
The Web 3.0 network will significantly reduce the cost of bureaucratic and legal procedures of mass creation and operation of communities.
Web 3.0 communities will educe their talented and productive members and support their development. Successful people will contribute to their communities’ development. Therefore, effective Web 3.0 communities will increase the effectiveness of the whole society.

Local Web 3.0 communities will minimize the alienation and loneliness of people, enhance mutual assistance and cooperation, increase morals, strengthen families, improve parenting, reduce crime, decrease alcoholism and narcomania.

It will involve sponsors in the creation and implementation of public projects. This will multiply quantities of contributors and donations.
Web 3.0 communities of experts will collectively evaluate and rank the professionalism of their members and the quality of their works.

Creating Web 3.0
Elements, cloud platforms and the structure of Web 3.0 system can be created within one year.
At this time, advertising of usefulness and effectiveness of Web 3.0 communities should be carried out.
Local authorities, banks, corporations, lawyers, notaries and other agents should be contracted and equipped to provide users with digital identifiers.
Among the first, the Web 3.0 crowdfunding community should be organized to create a system for monitoring forests of California to locate fire inflamings by means stratospheric balloons and high-altitude solar-powered drones.
Web 3.0 will give a great effect in biological and medical scientific communities. Biologists are able quickly to master the Web 3.0 technologies. Therefore, Web 3.0 communities of biologists and medics will be created first.
Then, Web 3.0 networks will be used for reorganization and creation of charitable organizations, councils of project sponsors, associations of small and medium businesses, condominiums, associations of inhabitants of settlements.
Then, within 2-3 years, users and consumers of all kinds will massively organize Web 3.0 communities.
The patent on "The Web 3.0 system for community self-government and structuring a society, and the business method” is pending.
