Annotation: The article deals with one of the forms of widespread dependence – the dependence of young people on social networks, which is caused by the almost non-stop need to communicate in various social networks. Dependence on social networks is a new problem that has not yet spread much in Russia, but every year the number of people suffering from this dependence increases. The world health organization has recognized Internet addiction as a disease. Staying on the Internet is not limited to games, young people actively communicate in social networks. The article presents statistical data indicating a continuous increase in the number of children who spend at least three hours a day on the Internet, and shows the positive and negative side of using social networks. Based on publicly available statistical data, the authors analyze the dynamics of the use of social networks by modern youth. The article also presents data from our own empirical research aimed at studying the goals and activities of young people in social networks. The results of an empirical study allowed us to draw conclusions about the level of dependence of young people on social networks. To prevent addiction, recommendations for using the Internet and social networks in particular have been developed.
