Abstract
Social media has been growing in popularity. Now it is not only an information media but also a necessity of human life, especially Millennial generation. Behind the worldwide information, it turns out that social media can also plunge society into criminal acts. One of them is lying, or popular news called a hoax. News that cannot be accounted for can be spread so widely without being identified where the source of the news came from. This paper highlights the actions of netizens in the dynamics of electronic transactions, which, in reality, are often proven criminal acts that end in court decisions. The act of electronic transactions that is currently dominant is the spread of hoax news, which has implications for personal relationships between one community group with other community groups. A review of the application of netizen behavior laws in the virtual public space will be applied in the public space following applicable laws. The problem is how to act against hoaxes to know what sanctions are imposed on the perpetrators. It used a descriptive research method with a normative approach. It is expected that the perpetrators can be deterred, and the public is more intelligent in receiving information. This writing focuses on electronic transactions between netizens by using the term electronic transmission as an act of sending messages or news contained in the Information and Electronic Transactions Law.
