While Instagram filters are traditionally viewed as aesthetic enhancements, this research highlights their broader roles, including entertainment, education, and personal branding. Utilizing a qualitative approach, this paper collects data through interviews and netnography, employing snowball sampling to gather in-depth insights from eight young Instagram users. Findings indicate that young people use filters not only for visual enhancement but also for fun, educational engagement, and the expression of personal traits like humor and intelligence. This usage underscores young people's agency as active consumers, manipulating digital tools to craft their public personas and navigate social media spaces. This study underscores the need for further quantitative research to explore the widespread patterns of filter consumption among youth, aiming to enrich the understanding of digital identity formation in a globalized context.</span></p> Dony Arung Triantoro, M.

"Elemental" serves as a modern allegory, reflecting the historical and ongoing struggles of Chinese immigrants in the United States, blending elements of cultural identity and adaptation within a fantastical setting. The film juxtaposes the fire element of immigrants with the traditional Chinese immigrant experience, examining themes of cultural integration, systemic discrimination, and the influence of media representation on public perceptions. Through denotative and connotative analyses, the research identifies how the film uses visual and verbal cues to construct a narrative that both challenges and perpetuates long-standing myths and stereotypes about Chinese immigrants. This study not only highlights the specific cinematic portrayal of Chinese immigrants but also discusses broader societal implications, including the impact of "Yellow Peril" propaganda and the role of media in shaping immigration policy discourse. The findings suggest that while "Elemental" contributes to a richer dialogue on cultural diversity, it also reveals the enduring complexities and challenges faced by Chinese immigrants in seeking acceptance and identity in a multicultural society.</span></p> Patrisia Amanda Pascarina, Louisa Christine Hartanto, Jennifer Esther Copyright (c) 2024 Patrisia Amanda Pascarina, Louisa Christine Hartanto, Jennifer Esther Fri, 26 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Countering Journalist Curse in A Bourdieusian Perspective: Metajournalistic Discourse on Doxing in Remotivi Indonesia <p style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">This research explores the phenomenon of doxing as a digital form of attack against journalists, reflecting a shift from physical threats to digital harassment facilitated by the accessibility of digital media. Utilizing a metajournalistic discourse approach, this study examines how Indonesian journalists perceive and respond to the pressures of doxing within the framework of their professional practices and identities. By analyzing metajournalistic discourse documents from the Remotivi website, this research positions journalists as both victims and defenders within their field, facing pressures from both the political and economic spheres. Pierre Bourdieu's theoretical constructs of the journalistic field, capital, and habitus are employed to interpret the responses of journalists to these digital threats. The findings indicate that doxing represents a significant external influence, perpetuating a high degree of heteronomy within the journalistic field. However, there also exists a discursive resistance among journalists, characterized by efforts to define and uphold a journalistic identity aligned with autonomy and ethical norms. This study highlights the need for greater cybersecurity awareness and protections for journalists, emphasizing the importance of maintaining journalistic integrity in the face of evolving digital threats.</span></p> Nanang Krisdinanto Copyright (c) 2024 CHANNEL: Jurnal Komunikasi Thu, 04 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Visual Narratives in Health Communication: Evaluating Comics as Tools for Health Literacy by the Indonesian Ministry of Health <p style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">This study investigates the efficacy of comics as a strategic communication tool for health promotion, utilizing a qualitative analysis of literature and examples from the "Sehat Negeriku" website managed by the Indonesian Ministry of Health. The multifaceted nature of comics, incorporating visual storytelling and character-driven narratives, offers a unique method for conveying complex health messages in an accessible and engaging manner. This research identifies several key advantages of comics in health communication, including increased appeal and interest among diverse demographics, enhanced memory retention through visual cues, emotional engagement that deepens message impact, stimulated creativity and imagination, and the ability to reach a broad audience. Data collection involved a thorough review of existing literature and content analysis of health communication comics, focusing on their structure, content, and reception. The findings highlight how comics, by blending entertainment with educational content, can effectively reduce resistance to health messages, facilitate behavioral change, and contribute to public health knowledge. Furthermore, the study underscores the importance of considering cultural relevance and audience-specific characteristics in comic design to maximize their educational impact. This paper contributes to the understanding of visual communication in public health and supports the integration of comics into broader health promotion strategies.</span></p> Sabri Sabri, Vani Dias Adiprabowo, Iman Sumarlan, Rafidei Mohamad Copyright (c) 2024 CHANNEL: Jurnal Komunikasi Thu, 04 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Resonance of Climate Crisis News Discourse in Indonesian Online Media: Reflections on Niklas Luhmann's Ecological Communication Theory Perspective <p>This study aims to examine the level of resonance of online media in Indonesia in reporting climate crisis issues through Niklas Luhmann's ecological communication perspective. Indonesia has a high vulnerability to the threat of climate crisis, so it is important for people to have awareness and proactive action to be able to overcome the problem of climate crisis. This research uses quantitative content analysis methods and topic modelling process in answering the research problem. The results show that the level of coverage of the climate crisis by four Indonesian online media in 2023 is still lower than other issues. The depth of information from online media articles varies, but in general, most articles only present basic information about general issues related to the climate crisis. The low resonance of the issue of climate crisis has led to a lack of response and sensitivity in dealing with the issue. The media has the power to raise public awareness of climate crisis issues. In conclusion, it is important to increase the intensity of coverage and the quality of articles on climate crisis issues.</p> Erika Febri Astuti, Fitriana Inayah, Abyzan Syahadin Bagja Dahana Copyright (c) 2024 CHANNEL: Jurnal Komunikasi Tue, 30 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000
