This article was written to describe the performance of Indonesian language from executive officials in social media, Facebook. The issues discussed focused on two things, namely (1) the structure of the sentence, and (2) the choice of vocabulary. Data source was the written text of executive officials in their Facebook. The data was collected by downloading the writing texts of the executive officials through Youtube. Data were analyzed qualitatively by content analysis method using linguistic theory related to sentence structure and diction (syntax). The results obtained were: first, the sentence structure used in the form of complex sentence, elliptical sentence, and inverted sentence; second, the vocabulary (diction) used in the form of Indonesian vocabulary (appropriate and inappropriate) and the vocabulary of regional and foreign languages.
