Humanity at Stake: A critical analysis on the impact of digital culture in Indonesian society

It is undeniable that the use of digital technology has brought great benefits for the society. In
fact, the habitual use of digital devices has formed what the so called ‘digital culture’, which
is simply interpreted as a transformation of the world by digital technology. It has also been
argued that the technology has undermined the humanity of the people. Moreover, there is also
an indication that ‘digital culture’ has affecting the Indonesian society particularly in humanity
aspects. Digital technology becomes problematic because it raises a question on how
technology can value the humanity in the process. The limited literature regarding the digital
culture and its impact to humanity, particularly in Indonesia, has become the reason why this
study is being conducted. Based on the explanation, this study aims firstly, to assess on how
digital technology has transformed the society, and secondly, to identify the impact of ‘digital
culture’ in Indonesian particularly in humanity aspects. To fulfil those aims, this study uses the
qualitative approach and it is done by analyzing literature and information and also by doing
observation through social media. Furthermore, the critical analysis is used not only to provide
the depth understanding but also the solution regarding to the subject. The result has shown
that in the case of Indonesia, digital technology has undermined the humanity. However, the
digital technology to some extent is undoubtedly desired by the society. Thus, the basic
dimensions of human being such as critical-thinking, ethical, and aesthetic values are
compulsory to be given to the society. It is an expectation that this study could provide insights
to the development of social studies and humanities.
