The article shows that cyberspace is the result of an adult's own goal setting, his choice of sites and other Internet sources (including groups in social networks) for work, activities, education, communication, entertainment etc., also the formation of its socio-cultural virtual space of development. Each adult builds his own space in his own way in accordance with the goal, readiness for self-development, the level of motivation and the presence of a project of self-development. This requires a well-developed strategic intellect and subjectness. Specially designed content contributes to the preservation and development of the mentioned psychological properties of users in crisis life circumstances (like quarantine self-isolation).

An experimental study of the subjectness development in crisis quarantine conditions was conducted in the context of design-technological paradigm on the materials of the designed by us on Facebook "Group of psychological support during the coronavirus." The group consistently considered the most important psychological problems of adults in quarantine and self-isolation: psychological features of professional activities in distance format, self-development and self-learning, problems of children distance learning, communication with them about quarantine problems. Much attention was paid to the specifics of experiencing self-isolation and, accordingly, psychological support for different age groups: children, youth, middle-aged and elderly people. Gender and family issues, problems of adults and people with special needs, conflict prevention, etc. were covered.

Adequate communication culture with a wide use of mutual respect, humor, optimism and a proactive, subjectness position was specially cultivated in the group discussions. The transformation of users from passive consumers of information to active creators of their own virtual content has contributed to the development of their subjectness in the process of group interaction. It is shown that groups in social networks, professionally designed and organized taking into account the psychological characteristics of both content and communicative interaction, have great psychoprophylactic and development potential.
