Introduction. The relevance of the study is caused, on the one hand, by the blogosphere’s dynamic development, and, on the other, by insufficient theoretical understanding of the blogosphere and its role in the formation of the legal culture of modern man. The purpose of the study is the identification of the educational resource of the blogosphere, its relevance, and justification of the need for its use in the formation of the individual’s legal culture.
Materials and research methods. The variety of research methodologies related to the consideration of the blogosphere’s educational resource as a factor in the formation of legal culture is due to the variety of approaches – cultural-historical, contextual, competency building, personality-centered, aimed at achieving the study goal.
Research result. As a result of monitoring the list of hashtags that we compiled, correlated with the theoretical construct «legal culture», conducted according to search queries in social networks, platforms and applications – VKontakte, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, statistics were obtained for the indicators «mention», «engagement», «sentiment», the TOP-10 hashtag rating was built. The data obtained indicates a high demand among users for legal content, legal information, and effective behavioral practices in legal situations. It is justified that interest in legal educational content in the blogosphere is associated with the current situation of people’s life, characterized by variability, non-standard, uncertainty, active development of law-making practice, which involves continuous updating of legislation’s knowledge.
Discussion of results and conclusions. The media sphere is represented by many environments, one of which is the blogosphere as a dynamically developing Internet space with educational potential. This potential is significant in the formation of the legal culture of the individual, its cognitive and activity components.
