Abstract. The current paper is focused on the research of Internet-mediated text as a special kind of oral-written discourse. The Internet has spawned an entirely new form of communication at the intersection of its conventional forms – a "written spoken language" which differs both from standard written speech and standard oral speech. Social network discourse as a result of Internet-mediated communication is characterized by a set of variant and invariant parameters that appear in the verbal and paraverbal characteristics of the digitally processed written text. The text as a product of the intellectual activity of a particular person is a complex structural formation with the laws of relations. The transition to a digital personality significantly affected the process of transmission and formation of the final digital product: text – intertext – quasi-text as a product of multi-stage processing of the initial version of the text. The main factors that characterize social network discourse presented in the article are reflected in the specifics of the texts generated in its process and which are considered as the result of the newest type of Internet-mediated communication. The article presents a paradigm change of linguistic expertology in relation to digital content, considers traditional and the newest approaches to estimating the key linguistic parameters that would allow to solve profiling issues on the basis of Russian speech.

Key words: Internet-mediated communication, social network discourse, text, intertext, quasi-text, individualizing features of the author's speech, profiling, expert analysis.
