The benefits of social media are increasingly diverse. Today many people use social media productively to create various content to earn money.
Digital Branding Strategist Fithrianti said that like a double-edged knife, social media has two impacts, namely positive and negative.
“Positively, social media can be a place to support businesses that are being pioneered as well as a medium for learning new knowledge,” said Fithrianti in a webinar, Friday (29/7/2022).
But on the other hand, social media is also often a medium for spreading false news and negative content. According to Fithrianti, this is due to the high use of social media which is not matched by the high ability in digital literacy in Indonesian society.

He said that not all countries have regulations that regulate the protection of personal data so that the legal aspects of citizens’ rights in the digital world can be guaranteed.
In fact, in the use and management of personal data in the digital world, privacy can be considered as our right to choose whether our personal data will be informed to other parties or not.
