Annotation The relevance of the work is due to the active spread of digital culture, which undoubtedly has an increasing impact on social processes in all areas of human life. Note that the nature of this impact is highly controversial. On the one hand, the development of digital technologies is assessed as a progressive step towards an open, global society based on common goals and values. On the other hand, there is criticism of the processes of digitalization that lead to manipulation of consciousness, the loss of a person’s own “I”, and the crisis of identity. Technological innovation should be seen as a process of “creative destruction” and, at the same time, creation. In this regard, technological advances and developments inevitably entail various kinds of conflicts and problems. To resolve them, it is necessary to understand the specifics of ongoing innovations and their social manifestations. The novelty of the work lies in the substantiation of the features of the digital culture of modern Russian society through the dynamics of its impact on social phenomena and processes. The purpose of the research is to determine the social manifestations of digital culture. To achieve this goal, we used methods of dialectics of social cognition, analysis of philosophical literature, synthesis and modeling of socio-cultural processes. The results of the research are conclusions about the development of the following features of a society that is becoming attached to digital culture: technological dependence, the appearance of a special language of communication, simplification of forms of social and personal life, programmability of human behavior, formalization of communication processes, weakening of their ethical content, the predominance of clip thinking, visual perception of the world, and a deepening gap with the traditions of humanitarian culture.
