Abstract

The rapid development of information and communication technology in the globalization era brought the Digital Revolution, such as the invention of the internet, and the creation of various kinds of internet-based social media. This eventually results in the birth of a generation called digital natives, i.e. a generation born and growing in the midst of the development and sophistication of the internet and gadgets, so for them, digital technology is an integral part of life and everyday life that cannot be separated. However, we must be aware of the excessive use of internet-based social media. This because they feel that they have unlimited freedom in conveying various opinions, information, and ideas in the form of various statuses on social networks, which they consider as their private territory. They don't seem to realize that by uploading statuses on various social networks, these statuses will be accessible to all other internet users from all over the world, and can have various positive and negative impacts, including the possibility of the occurrence of violence/serious threats to national security. This becomes the responsibility of the state to regulate and supervise digital natives so that they can use the internet responsibly in accordance with moral ethics and laws in Indonesia.
