I listed several bullet points for Web 1.0, with corresponding bullets under Web 2.0



Compare Web 1.0 with Web 2.0


You may add images if you wish and other HTML code




WEB 1.0 was static, read only and one way. Web 1.0 was static pages instead of dynamic user-generated content, only professionals and technical people could develop it. The design for web pages was based on tables to position images (usually GIF files) and contents on the web page.  Web 1.0 is also characterized by:

  • A general time-line from 1990 - 2005.
  • Hierarchical searches for information (such as the old Yahoo)
  • No direct link to readers
  • One-way communications between web-site and readers
  • Limited author-ship of articles
  • Slow connections limited most sites to lots of text with small
  • Limited or no advertising on most sites

WEB 2.0 -It is fast, easy to use, mobile,. It introduced the "read-write" Web which is a two way communication. Interaction between users and the web page with content modification, picture and video sharing. It has the ability to interact with other people.  Comparable Web 2.0 attributes include:

  • Emerging around 2004 and continuing to the present
  • Single-level searches through the use of tags on any entity (such as an article, pic, or video)
  • Users treated as first-class entities with individual profiles
  • Multi-level communications between site sponsors and users, such as blogs and automatic feeds
  • Collaborative articles using blogs and wikis
  • High-speed connections promote use of intense graphics, movies, and streaming videos  
  • Any site easily monetized through tools such as Google Adsense, Squidoo, and Amazon Affiliate Program


WEB 1.0 was considered for informational purposes, kind of "look and don't touch" unlike WEB 2.0. WEB 2.0 provides FREE access to unlimited resources and sharing of information like pictures and video for starters. FrontPage Unlike Web 1.0 that we had to search for information, in Web 2.0 the information finds and comes to us, anyone can contribute, produce content and creates links between people and conversations.
