Social media as part of the information communication technology, provides a space to argue on thoughts that had not previously been disclosed. It is moving very fast and become a new space of expression for the society. The phenomenon of social media today is increasingly widespread, not only become a place to make friends but also transformed into a new media that even used as a reference news, information and knowledge. Facebook as a social media with the largest users in Indonesia become a new media to influence public opinion, mobilize the masses and provide moral pressure on a conflict or cases. The era of information disclosure and freedom of speech seemed to be a double-edged sword. On one side it is advantageous but on the other side it could be detrimental. Using the concept of pataphysics, this research tries to see how the Indonesian people are challenged to face the "flood of information" in social media and against the hoax, hate speech and social media abuse. Pataphysics tends to eliminate existing ones and hold ones that do not exist. The growing virtual era makes the dominance of physical and metaphysical power replaced by the power of image (pataphysics). The image that was originally the medium for message delivery, now becomes the message itself. Pataphysics in social media in recent days drove netizens familiar with the most recent Pataphysics products such as hoax, hate speech and social media abuse.
