The virtual public sphere that develops as a result of the online communication and discussion by members of the expanded nation is another aspect of the digital dimension that most influences the social shape of the cosmonation.

Some changes reflect the relations between the hostland and the homeland before the collapse of the Soviet Union, when diasporans were sometimes seen as potential security risks or fifth columns.
