The individual is no longer a passive audience. With wide access to the virtual world, every individual can also be an information producer.

This new landscape makes it easy to exchange information, including false or hoax news. Indonesia has 250 million inhabitants and an estimated 135 million of whom have connections to the cyber world, facing a dilemma.

On the one hand information can be disseminated quickly and massively. On the other hand, information, and communication technology can also be used to spread false rumor, hate speech and slander, quickly and massively.

In addition to UKW, which also needs to be done is to build an association of internet-based mass media companies to encourage professionals of cyber media companies are very much in number in Indonesia.
