The article deals with the modern communication revolution interpreted by the author as a transition from computer communication to net communication. The inculcation of computer into the social life resulted in the formation of a unique communication environment made up of computer networks. Synthesizing the mass, group, personal and anonymous communications, the Internet has thus constituted the basis of new social forms. Their popularity and mass character have been provided by the joining of mobile telephony and computer technologies, which has proved to be the source of permeability of all levels of the communication space. The soon-to-be mergence of the virtual and the social worlds is to signify a new wave of the communication revolution.
