INFORMATION-ADDICTS AMONG TEENAGERS IN THE WORLD OF GLOBALIZATION

The article deals with teenager’s addiction to information. The author analyzes the current social situation in Russian society, which is characterized by the growing number of young people unable to address their personal, social and moral problems. Comparative results of research carried out for many years in Russia and Europe have proved that teenagers are in a constant state of information overload and are regularly subjected to attacks of unwanted influence of communication media, which is sometimes even dangerous to their existence. The author suggests ways of protection and management training for children-youth community of different ages developed in the press center “Carabela” for fifty years. All theoretical conclusions are based on practical results.
One of the major problems of the contemporary global education is to teach young people to act and develop in the circumstances of information society, more complicated, and unstable social environment, different groups and cultures. We assume that means for the formation of adolescent social competence should be sought on the basis of theoretical ideas about the nature of the development of social skills in all-aged groups. In a broad sense, it is a social skill that determines competencies aimed at the implementation of life strategy and the solution of everyday, civil, personal, professional, domestic and cultural problems.
Modern technologies by their nature of impact are global and today there is a strong tendency for the development of information flows which, being a sort of extended central nervous system, engage everybody in a single "information field". This factor compresses the globe to the size of a one-horse town, where the news is spread in a flash (as lightning). People all over the world almost at the same time learn about the great triumphs, i.e. Danish anti-depressant glasses and tragedies, i.e. tsunami in Japan.
It's no secret that today the media of mass communication, which provide information space, play a key role in the globalization of everyday communication and the formation of the spiritual life of the planet, on the whole. And now it is high time to pay attention to the fact that humanity of the third millennium is in a constant state of information overload and is regularly subjected to attacks of unwanted, and sometimes even threatening its existence, information effect.
