Some author's models represent a typological approach to personal individuality in the information space. The authors used a complex of methods. Original and author's techniques were psychodiagnostic tools of research. The representativeness of the sample and mathematical data processing confirmed the reliability of the results. The paper analyzed the results of the empirical study of the individual-typological features of students' personality in the online interactions. According to the type and degree of involvement, the authors described three types of network behavior of the students participating in the online interactions.
