Abstract

Politeness is a norm in society that functions to maintain harmony between individuals in the society. Currently, the development of information and communication technology enables a shift in social interaction from direct human interaction to online interaction through a media, like social media. Without politeness, there will be a chaos, and one of which that appears more often nowadays is cyberbullying. The politeness phenomenon in this online interaction can be seen from the interactions that occur in social media, with Instagram as one of the platforms that increasingly more popular recently. It is a descriptive qualitative study about FTA in online interaction, particularly between women Instagram users. It is a literature study that is hoped can enrich the conceptual study about politeness in online interaction using social media. The data collection techniques in this study is document studies, with the source of data are reference about the research topic from journal articles or handbook. The expected findings from this study are the presence of FTA patterns on social media, especially among women. The implication of this study is that there are guidelines for further conducting studies that are able to find the background and reasons why female Instagram users apply or not apply the FTA.
