Abstract

The use of social media, especially for millennial generation in politcal education, is increasingly strategic to semanate information so that people have perceptions in order to participate in politics. This is natural along with the increasing number of internet use, including in political activities and elections. Unfortunately, the increase in this number has not been maximally utilized by millennial voters to conduct political education. This can be seen in the reality of content and news that is much popular, namely only entertainment, sports, infotaimen. While political content is not much in demand by millenial generations. As a result, millennial generation interest and interest in being actively involved in politics is low. The low political participation of millennial generation is caused by a perception that considers politics to have negative, ugly, bad, boring connotations. Therefore, in the future requires political literacy appropriately and massively for millennial voters.
