In the context of social movements, new media with all its advantages is not only a means of synchronous and asynchronous communication for a social movement but also for mobilization, and another political practice, particularly collective action on social networking sites has not been aimed at changing the social order and power relations in society. However, when viewed through the social movement perspective that there is a possible ideological purpose behind the use of ICT in collective action, and considering that social networking pages have a specific design that allows messages to be created in a certain way to attract public attention. Collective action is the forerunner of a social movement. The question is whether or it is true that ICT contributes to collective awareness and action which is now a new phenomenon in the development of information technology? This qualitative research wants to explore how collective action in New Media works. With the basis of existing literature studies, it can be argued that collective action cannot be the same as social movements, but social movements are contained in collective action itself. Almost all cases of collective action that occur in Indonesia are politically charged and temporary. This allows the collectivity to be dynamic. New media then allegedly became a stimulus as well as a means to create awareness and collective action of the society.
