ELIMINATE TOLERANCE AND CULTURE – Digital culture is experiencing various challenges, including the disappearance of Indonesia’s culture of hospitality and excessive freedom of expression.
“Politeness is also running low because we only see figures in cyberspace in this square screen,” said the East Java Digital Communications Committee, and Bhayangkara University Public Relations, Fitria W Roosinda, during the Makin Cakap Digital 2022 webinar for community groups and communities in the region. Mojokerto City, East Java on Friday (15/7/2022), quoted from a press release received in Jakarta.
Not only that, the attitude of tolerance is also reduced in the era of digitalization which is more met in cyberspace. Another digital challenge is copyright infringement, where many cases of using logos become problematic in the midst of the creative industry which is also growing in the digital era.
The boundaries of privacy between users also disappear, often many comments and statuses on social media are private, but can become public consumption due to lack of knowledge from users.
Currently, content creators or influencers are also appearing on various social media platforms. Various kinds of news and information can be found in cyberspace, but not all of the information is true. Users are also reminded that they must be more observant in filtering information and choosing content that is useful, not just entertaining.
Responding to the development of Computer Information Technology (ICT), the Indonesian Ministry of Communication and Information together with the National Digital Literacy Movement (GNLD) Siberkreasi collaborated and launched the Indonesia More Digitally Capable program. This program is based on the four main pillars of digital literacy, namely Digital Capabilities, Digital Ethics, Digital Culture, and Digital Security. Through this program, 50 million people are targeted to receive digital literacy by 2024
Digital 2022 for community groups and communities in the Mojokerto City area, East Java is part of the socialization of the National Digital Literacy Movement organized by the Ministry of Communication and Information in collaboration with Cyber Creation.
