    • be based on unique and hard-to-recreate data sources that get richer as more people use them,
    • trust users as co-developers,

    • be potentially deployable on any device,
    • provide users with lightweight user interfaces, development models, and business models.

    • criticism has included the term “a second bubble” (referring to the Dot-com bubble of circa 1995–2001), suggesting that too many Web 2.0 companies attempt to develop the same product with a lack of business models.
    • Critics have cited the language used to describe the hype cycle of Web 2.0 as an example of Techno-utopianist rhetoric.
    • Critics such as Andrew Keen argue that Web 2.0 has created a cult of digital narcissism and amateurism
