All subjects of the Russian Federation are ranked into four groups (developed family policy, secondary development, weak, there is no or insufficient information) depending on the degree of compliance with such criteria as: clearly highlighted online-information in regional family authorities for the advancement of families and regional family policy; ongoing activities in the region, aimed at the family, children and parents; programs to improve the housing situation of families in the region; programs of financial and social assistance to families; information about the programs and activities should be published in open access on the official website of the subject of the Russian Federation in the Internet. Regional activities and programs of support and assistance to Russian families are described in detail. The article presents the results of in-depth interviews with 50 Russian families living in the municipalities of the Krasnodar Territory and Rostov Region and the Republic of Adygea. Folksonomy analysis helps both to investigate the degree of state actors of family policy involvement in the field of information and news, and to examine inquiries concerning family policy posted on the Internet.
