Autors: 
Sokolova Dina Mikhailovna, Saratov State University
Abstract: 

In this article the phenomenon of virtualization of the social reality is considered. There are many definitions of virtualization in the scientific literature.Some authors define virtualization as a replacement of reality by the images; others prefer to consider virtualization as a process of creating an alternative social space. Recently, virtualization is increasingly defined as a combination of virtuality and reality. In fact, the significant transformation of the fundamentals of social life is a distinctive feature ofvirtualization of the sociality in the information period. For example, a new principle of network organization is being developed in the virtual world. Now this principle is extended to the social structures that exist in reality.
