Abstract

This study explains the practice of using social media among students who have different backgrounds and policies at Islamic boarding schools. The implications of these differences produce a unique and heterogeneous hybrid culture. In this study, researchers used a type of qualitative research with a phenomenological approach. Data were obtained from 25 Islamic boarding schools in collaboration with IAIN Purwokerto through participant observation, in-depth interviews, and documentation. The results of this study indicate that the limited time given by Islamic boarding schools in using social media does not discourage them from using it. Furthermore, social media is able to change the old students’ culture which is shown by their simplicity, obedience, courtesy, and deep understanding of religious and social-community issues to be a hybrid culture which is hedonic, egalitarian, and instant in religious and social issues.
