It’s All About the Library

It’s All About the Library

Web 1.0 refers to the first stage of the World Wide Wide Web where content creators were few and most of the users simply act as passive viewers or consumers of content. Web 1.0 is also called ‘Read Only Web’.Web 2.0 is the name used to describe the second generation of the world wide web, where it moved from static HTML pages to a more interactive and dynamic web experience. Web 2.0 is focused on the ability for people to collaborate and share information online via social media, blogging and Web-based communities. It promoted user generated content and participatory culture by making Web as an interactive experience rather one-way conversation as in the past. The term “Web 2.0” was coined by Darcy DiNucci in her article ‘Fragmented Future’ published in January 1999 and later popularized by Tim O’Reilly and Dale Dougherty.
