Abstract

The development of internet technology especially in the penetration of social media usage in Indonesia gives a significant impact in the dynamics of civil society in social movement. Looking at the case of the Akademi Berbagi Movement with a point of view as a social movement, it is important to emphasize that this movement falls into the category of what Singh and Tourrine call the New Social Movement. Within the framework of Singh, social movements are divided into two categories: the 'old social movement' and the 'new social movement'. Internet especially social media - twitter and facebook - has become one of the tools of activism; the internet can make it easier for someone to become an activist; the internet can be used to manage support for an activism. This can all lead to greater public participation that will be a time bomb ready to explode and strengthen democracy in Indonesia by providing additional strength to the people, especially when the authorities do not want to hear the people. So, from the presence of social media then it can be concluded that has emerged a new movement, a new model that I call the "Online Social Movements".
