Observations done in TikTok activities and engaging in interactions with TikTok users to be able to understand and uncover the commodification practices of women that occur in TikTok. This study revealed how intertextual the commodification of women in Tiktok was using a critical method that leverages Julia Kristeva's post-modern feminist outlook as a conceptual framework. The findings of this study reveal that the body, women, and culture are interwoven and produce meaning, which overrides earlier meanings by establishing new meanings that exploit Tiktok users, particularly women, which is consistent with media evolution, which also influences value meaning.

Human trafficking, also known as TPPO (Tindak Pidana Perdagangan Orang) in Indonesia, is one of the threats that users encounter, it commonly happens to young users who do not have enough information about it, but they can obtain TPPO information through employment advertisements in the media. The goal of this study is to look at media literacy levels and the correlations between them and TPPO message comprehension in new media. This research used a descriptive quantitative method with a correlation approach, in which associations between variables were measured. The media literacy levels of respondents were measured by using a Likert scale with a range of 1-5. The aspects measured were age, school origin and ownership of social media. These aspects and the TPPO message understanding in new media were measured by a Pearson scale. This study found that the highest level of media literacy was in the age group of 15 years old from SMAN 1(Public Senior High School) Pakem and that the number of social media account ownership did not show a significant relationship with the literacy levels. The measurement on the relationships between the media literacy levels and the TPPO message understanding by using a Pearson scale obtained 0.606; these results indicated that the correlation between both variables was high.

Travelling has become a part of lifestyle and has been closely associated with tourism sector which is potential to generate revenue. In the past 20 years, young people have played an important role in the global tourism. Research in Indonesia in 2016 revealed that 35% or 25 million young people out of the country’s 261 million population loved travelling. According to the Indonesia’s Statistic Body (Badan Pusat Statistik), millennials are keen on travelling due to the consumption shift in the society. Our productive generation prefer spending their money on seeking experiences to buying consumptive products. Besides, the fast-changing technology facilitates travellers to document their journey in a vlog format. The vlogs can later be played and shared in the Internet through social media such as YouTube and Instagram. The research aimed to analyze the interpretation of the millennials’ experience after watching travel vlogs in YouTube, and to analyze the meanings of their experience in sharing content in YouTube and other social media platforms. We used Social Construction of Technology (SCoT) Theory with phenomenological approach to analyze the aims. The results showed that travel vlog was a progressive way of the usage and construction of social technology. Travel vlogs have brought a significant increase in travelling culture in millennials. They would rather save money to gain travelling experience than to purchase consumptive goods. They would also prefer sharing their experiences through Instastory feature in Instagram to YouTube. Having said that, YouTube should add a simpler feature so that millennials or travel vloggers can share their travelling experiences in the channel easier.

The Directorate General of Taxes (DGT) has been running a tax reform program to enable a comprehensive transformation in the taxation system to create a strong, credible, and accountable tax institution. This program enhances equitable taxation and an excellent and integrated data expansion to increase tax revenues. The discourses on tax reform are primarily promoted on DGT communication channels, including its online social media. This discourse leads to a likely impact of a partial taxation system. Thisresearch aims to analyze the discourse of tax reform on the online social media of DGT using Norman Fairclough’s Critical Discourse Analysis based on texts on online media as the primary data. It was revealed that DGT conveys messages about tax reform in three ways: tax reformation as a public communication campaign, discourse of Indonesia taxation transparency, and discourse of taxation in the Directorate General of Taxes to face the 4.0 industrial revolution. DGT conveys these three discourses according to its work scope as a state institution that constantly strives for making transformations through its programs that are carried out based on the provisions of the umbrella institutions, including the vision and mission of the President. In this case, the President’s vision and mission are inseparable from the demands of the times, international pressure, the history of the nation, and social changes in society.

The global commitment to fighting the pandemic is not only about medical and epidemiological work, but also about how information about the disease is disseminated. The threat of the Covid-19 infodemic is no less dangerous than the pandemic itself. The phenomenon of infodemic has distorted the work of science and reduced public trust in state authorities. This research has identified, mapped, and analyzed official government responses to fake news attacks on social media. This study uses an interpretive-phenomenological approach, related to the spread and belief of fake news about Covid-19 in Indonesia. Data analysis uses the Nvivo-12 Pro application, as an artificial intelligence tool to support data exploration from various sources. The results show that the quality of media literacy, public communication performance, and the effectiveness of government regulations have become part of the challenges in mitigating infodemic. The level of public trust in information from social media contributes to the decline in trust in fake news about Covid-19. Stimulation from the social media news that does not control the belief in myths and false information about Covid-19. Content creators who have produced, posted, and shared on social media channels that are less critical, have an impact on the infodemic situation. The solution is to increase media literacy education and the effectiveness of law enforcement in mitigating the infodemic in Indonesia.

Language as a part of the study of communication is often used to build individuals' "image," especially amongst people (such as YouTubers) who are well known to the public. In linguistics, one's use of specific language to express oneself is called one's language style. Language styles serve as "signs," through which users create concepts of themselves and their personalities. As such, individuals' language styles usually have specific purposes and functions. This study will examine the language style used by Cyprien, a French media YouTuber, and its functions using the theory of Catherine Fromilhague using qualitative approach. Its corpus draws on data from Cyprien's five most popular videos (as ascertained based on the number of viewers), which were accessed through YouTube media. The data were obtained by viewing these videos and noting the utterances and language styles used. Afterward, data were classified and analyzed based on the language style used and its function. This research finds that eleven language styles were used, with different frequencies. These styles served argumentative, ornamental, and cognitive functions. The conclusion of this study are used to draw viewers' interest and stave off boredom, thereby ensuring that they are willing to follow Cyprien's channel. At the same time, these language styles are used for a range of purposes, including emphasizing essential points and creating rhythm.

AbstrakPenelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui reaksi masyarakat terhadap informasi pandemi Covid yang disampaikan oleh media massa. Penyampaian berbagai berita atau hal yang sejenisnya secara berkali-kali membuat masyarakat mudah faham, dan memiliki dampak ketidakpercayaan jika tidak sesuai dengan faktanya. Penelitian ini mencoba untuk mengungkap dan menemukan bahwa media massa secara simultan dapat meningkatkan kepercayaan tentang covid-19 atau sebaliknya. Penelitian ini berbeda dengan yang lainnya, dikarenakan bahwa media yang secara simultan malah membuat ketidakpercayaan secara penuh terhadap pemberitaan yang disampaikan. Metode yang digunakan dalam penelitian ini adalah deskriptif kuantitatif secara pusposive sampling terhadap para mahasiswa yang sekarang lagi belajar secara daring dan selalu dekat dengan berita di media sosial. Responden dalam penelitian ini adalah 300 mahasiswa yang terdiri dari tujuh kampus di Provinsi Kalimantan Selatan, Indonesia. Berdasarkan hasil temuan, penelitian ini menyimpulkan bahwa informasi yang disampaikan berulang kali tentang Covid akhirnya membuat masyarakat kurang peduli terhadap Covid. Hal ini dibuktikan dengan munculnya fakta terbalik dari berita dari berbagai media massa.Kata kunci: Persepsi, media, fakta, simultan, masyarakat AbstractThis study aims to determine the public's reaction to the Covid pandemic information conveyed by the mass media. Repeatedly conveying various news or similar things makes it easy for the public to understand, and has an impact of distrust if it is not by the facts. This study tries to uncover and find that mass media can simultaneously increase beliefs about Covid-19 or vice versa. This study is different from the others because the media simultaneously make complete distrust of the news delivered. The method used in this research is descriptive quantitative by purposive sampling of students who are currently studying online and are always close to the news on social media. Respondents in this study were 300 students from seven campuses in South Kalimantan Province, Indonesia. Based on the findings, this study concluded that the information that was repeatedly conveyed about Covid ultimately made the public less concerned about Covid. This is evidenced by the emergence of upside-down facts from the news from various mass media.Keywords: Perception, media, facts, simultaneous, society
