This research highlights the communication orientations of refugee communities in Indonesia, by looking at the messages in the Instagram posts of @vorindonesia and @helpforrefugees. Hence, a qualitative textual content analysis is employed to study the captions of the Instagram posts of @vorindonesia and @helpforrefugees. Prior to the qualitative textual content analysis, the posts from the two Instagram accounts are extracted using Python and then clustered using Infranodus to see the frequency and relations among the words that constitute the captions. These clusters are further analysed qualitatively to define important themes that would help us understand the communication orientations of the refugee communities as displayed on the two Instagram accounts.
The result demonstrate difference in topic segmentation between the two Instagram accounts that reflect their communication orientations. The communication orientation of @vorindonesia tends to reflect the struggle of refugees in Indonesia. Meanwhile, the communication orientations of @helpforrefugees tends to reflect the resilience of refugees in Indonesia. The theoretical and practical implications of this research are also discussed.
