Abstract

Early XXI century is the time when the world was rearranged and new relationships between the society and the political authorities were formed. The present study analyzes network mechanisms of political communication and their influence on the transformation of political systems of modern states. The applied relevance of this study is conditioned by the wide use of network forms of communication between the structures of the civil society and the state. Boundaries between them are largely diluted now. On the one hand, this extends the possibilities for citizens to participate in the political activity; on the other hand, this makes such participation spontaneous and uncontrollable. Both tendencies greatly influence the political process not only in the conditions of stable democratic regimes but also in various types of authoritarian and semi-authoritarian regimes. The authors make the following conclusions with respect to the fact whether proliferation of internet-technologies and growth of social networks
