Abstract

Social media is a powerful tool for updating knowledge, news, and events that occur faster than television. The importance of digital literacy is a powerful stick for fighting rampant social media crime. There are many ways to prevent bad things from happening to social media users. The purpose of this article is to explain the importance of digital literacy for the general public, especially Indonesia. The recent incident with junior high school students was a sad portrait of social media. Evil comments seem to be a natural thing found in every news about them. The lack of attitude in cyberspace is the homework of today's generation. Things like this are not only in Indonesia, almost all the world experiences it and must be reminded often that the polite and polite attitude in the world can be applied. Low awareness of the "code of ethics" social media becomes a complex problem and the need for learning and early application to the current generation in particular. This article uses documentation research and reviews online news content about events on social media. The result is that people, Indonesia in particular, are still not very good at dealing with viral things on the internet.
