The article analyzes the range of information and communicative resources for maintaining political system stability. Electronic media efficiency is examined from the point of social control in public sphere. Person’s social adaptation in terms of globalization and informational pressure from media structures appears to be rather complex process, so political system legitimating on the basis of recognition and trust to the power acquires its problematical character. The need of searching for any new forms of streamlining of both information and communicative space serving the political system, results from the principles of socio-cognitive approach. Any information, whether directed or non-directed, in communication network acts as the prerequisite for each person’s action; this makes information a capacious resource for political system stabilization, though ambiguous owing to distinctions in value mindsets and arising semantic barriers in personal processes of transferred message assessment.
