The Web culture – the culture of the Internet – is our present. It established itself with the development of the World Wide Web at the beginning of the 1990s, and has since spread across the globe. It is in perpetual movement, and each day new symbols and practices emerge. With the Smartphone we are permanently on the move online, whether at home, in front of the computer or when out and about. The Internet has become so much part of our everyday life that it is no longer possible, or rather necessary, to make a clear distinction between online and offline action.
