Contemporary telediplomacy has become not only an integral part of the current Political Science process but also a tool that largely guides and regulates these processes. As global media networks are full-fledged actors of the world politics, telediplomacy plays a number of roles. The present paper scrutinizes major directions of its activity in contemporary international relations and assesses prospects for development of its destructive and constructive potential.
