Social media in the era of advances in information technology allows us to more freely relate to people in various parts of the world. This can have both positive and negative impacts. One thing that needs to be addressed is the easier it is for foreign cultures to enter through social media which can affect national identity. Therefore, Pancasila as the nation's view of life means that Pancasila is the guideline for every behavior of the Indonesian nation. The values contained in Pancasila should be able to become a filter against incoming foreign cultures due to the easier access to social media in the current era of technological advancement.
