Internet of fun
The desire to divert should not be underestimated. Nor should the possibilities to cultivate play and humour. The Internet evolved from a network of information to facilitate in research and all kinds of daily, mundane tasks, to a tool to communicate with and build communities. As it became easier to independently build and distribute tools, in and outside social networks, humour gradually gained ground on the World Wide Web. Today, countless of websites are solely devoted to humour, and an enormous amount of traffic of comical messages are spread around the globe.
