    Abstract:
    Since 2014 after the General Elections in Indonesia, the public information space has been decorated with a lot of hoax information, which is false information with malicious content that can cause readers to misread something. This phenomenon is increasingly rife every time it approaches political performances. There is a big suspicion that certain actors deliberately create hoax information for specific purposes. On that basis, in this study, three main issues are raised namely, why do people have the heart to deceive others by spreading hoax information on social media, and how can people with good heads be fooled by it, finally, how the impact of hoaxes on social life. This study uses a qualitative method with a literature study approach. The results found that the hoax deliberately built for political purposes by utilizing technological objectives and attacking vulnerable groups categorized as "digital native." The impact of a hoax is hazardous for the community because it can trigger a prolonged horizontal conflict.
