The transformations that the Internet has undergone in recent years have meant that, despite its relatively recent appearance, this medium is already in a mature phase. The speed at which these changes have been taking place has left little margin to reflect on the implications that they have had for advertising communication and the actors involved. The objective of this monograph is to therefore rethink the role of the Internet within the framework of advertising communication and evaluate what its effect has been on consumers, brands and agencies. While users transform their own personal brand into a business, companies find new ways to make a profit from their products and learn to communicate symmetrically with consumers. In parallel, the professional sector tries to adapt to the new rules of the game by reconceptualizing business and organizational structures and by consolidating new professional roles that encompass both information technology and communication. In turn, the educational sector has been forced to revise its degree programs –yet again– in order to guarantee that students acquire the skills and knowledge that the professional sector demands.
