This distinctionis justified by completely new circumstances which are perceptible on adaily basis: for example the forms of establishing and maintaining com-munication have undergone fundamental changes and ICT-aided solu-tions are playing an ever greater role, replacing interpersonal communi-cation. However, what must never be forgotten is that - although themedium is different – there is always a person behind the digital toolsand this is why the tasks of youth work extend into virtual space.In the present issue of  Excenter Füzetek  [Excenter Booklets] we willdeal with youth work that can be and is to be carried out in the variousdigital spaces. We will introduce the characteristic features of this new area, and focus on the general rules that define it as well as the variousfeatures of individual media (applications). We will introduce practicalexamples whose success should be followed as models, and we will for-mulate general fundamental rules that are worth maintaining if we wishto pursue youth work in the virtual space. 5 Ex6 10/9/2 9:38 AM Page 5
