The concepts of "trajectory" and "vector" are examined with reference to the study of the features of the socialization of modern children and adolescents. Using the notions of the normative and crisis vector of socialization, highlighted the main directions of this process, which are realized within the framework of a modern transitive society. It emphasizes the relevance of research on the current orientation of socialization, taking into account the growing processes of globalization and informatization. Based on the notion of a new format of interpersonal and intergenerational connections, discussed the issue of searching for new criteria for the identification of generations in the context of increased transitivity. In this vein, a comparison is made between the formation of identities within a single age by the example of groups of children and adolescents from megacities and small towns (villages). Comparing the processes of individualization and focus on reference groups and generally accepted values ​​of society, the problem of understanding the productivity of socialization is touched upon. In this vein, the specific personal dispositions necessary for effective interaction under conditions of uncertainty and the absence of a stable value system are considered. The question is raised about the possibility of a conflict between these dispositions of the individual and the demands of society, and, as a consequence, the formation of a crisis vector of socialization. Also presented the results of the study - comparing three groups of adolescents of the same age with different periods of admission to the Humanitarian College of the RSUH. Based on this, the profile of the Crisis Group of Adolescents is described. This is a group of students who entered the first year in 2016-17 after the social and economic crisis of Russian society in 2014-15. It compares with adolescents between 2013-14 and 2014-15 of admission, classified as Stable and Transitional Groups, respectively. As a result of this comparative analysis, conclusions are drawn regarding the formation of a new image of the modern generation that is oriented toward the processes of individualization in the context of the socially-economic crisis of Russian society.
