In the digital age of a transitive society, interaction between people is undergoing significant changes. Many researchers talk about the virtualization of modern society, in which visual communication comes to the fore. However, despite the prevalence of the above-mentioned processes, questions remain about strategies for presenting themselves to society using social networks, and how people position themselves when publicly presenting themselves in an online environment. As part of the empirical study, the object was 30 boys and 30 girls, representatives of modern youth who actively use social networks. The age of the subjects is from 14 to 17 years. We used four test methods: the "Who am I" Method of Kuhn and McPortland; the "Scale of self-presentation tactics" by S.J. Li in the adaptation of Pikuleva O.A.; "Scale of perfectionist self-presentation" By P. Hewitt in the adaptation of Zolotareva A.A.; "Test of self-confidence" by V.G. Romek. The theoretical and practical significance of the research lies in the development of ideas about the specifics of self-presentation of modern youth who actively use social networks. The results of the study can be used in the practice of family and individual counseling of parents and adolescents, as well as in teachers and psychologists of various educational institutions.
