The difference is in the way they are displayed. In standard HTML div is a block-level element where span is an inline element.

This means that a span tag won't support in many cases some CSS properties like for instance margin.

DIV is a block level element that means you can create a block with the help of DIV where inside you can add multiple elements including other DIVs while SPAN works on just a specific part of something. Like in a text line you want to bold only few words, you use SPAN here. SPAN do no support all the properties but still very useful in some cases.

If you have 2 divs they will display one under the other unlike spans that will display inline unless you add a brake!

In simple words span is used for dividing div into pieces. Div uses for creating a block on web page, where span uses for diving that div further.

Both div and span are HTML elements act as a container. DIV is ablock level element but SPAN is a inline element. DIV will create new line but SPAN will not create new line. SPAN is a light weight container but DIV is heavy weight container.
