IDENTITAS DIRI DALAM POLITIK MASYARAKAT VIRTUAL SEBUAH TINJAUAN TENTANG ANONIMITAS

Dwi Cahyo Prasetyo

Abstract


This article aims to examine the interrelationships between politics that exist in
virtual society, and their relationship with self-identity reflected in current anonymity
on social media. This article uses qualitative research methods, through existing
observation and literature studies. Technological advances form a new world called
the virtual world. The concept of identity in virtual society is a difference of opinion
between destitopians, neofuturists and technicians. The presence of this virtual world
makes people free to become anonymous or people without identity. In the political
contestation of anonymity can give the public the freedom to argue, while on the other
hand anonymity can have a negative impact which can lead to conflict.
Keywords: Anonymity, Virtual Society, politics
