Abstract: The authors take a look at one of the value-orientated components and factors of socialization in the Internet – impressions of virtual communication, taking the nature and strength of
impressings, the social significance of which is that they largely determine the interiorization of social values and norms. The main conclusions of the impressions (impressings) arising in the communicative space of the Internet, are formulated according to the results of empirical research conducted with the help of the questionnaire method, focus groups and in-depth interviews. The authors obtain primary data on the nature and direction of the impressions of virtual communication and their impact on the value-regulatory system of communication both in the Internet and outside it. It was found that the rich figurative and semantic environment of the Internet combined with the emotional stress of virtual communication situations contributes to the appearance of impressings, especially in the sensitive age periods, including adolescence as the most vulnerable one. Impressings arising in virtual communication are specific both in the source of occurrence, and emotional orientation, while retaining the emotional reaction force being characteristic of “reality”. Socially significant consequences are represented by negative impressings emerging in the Internet space, as values which are fixed in their result and broadcast on real social interaction as well.

Keywords: socialization, Internet communication, Internet space, virtual social networks, impression, impressing, values, youth.
