Summary/Abstract: The article is devoted to Internet-trend on Existentialism in Russian social networks. Jean-Paul Sartre, Albert Camus and Franz Kafka became popular characters for Russian young people who are active Internet users. They correlated Existentialism with concepts of “hopeless”, “Futility”, “emptiness”. We made an attempt to analyze this phenomenon and tried to explain that Existentialism is not directed against the person but for him.
