Skalanews - Officials of the Ministry of Communication and Information said in 2017 the agency has blocked as many as 6,000 negatively charged sites such as radicalism, communism, pornography and others.

"By the end of 2016 we have blocked 800 negatively charged sites and resumed this year," said Gun Gun Siswadi, Expert Staff to the Public Discussion Forum with the theme "Groansing the Value of Pancasila to Strengthen the Unity of Caring for Diversity" in Painan, West Sumatra, on Saturday (4/11).

Nevertheless, he said, sites negatively charged still appear like mushrooms that grow in the rainy season despite the blocking continues to be done.

"Related to that also required the active role of parents in supervising their children," he said.

He mentioned that in the era of globalization anything can be accessed either via mobile phone or computer equipment so that supervision is an effective step to anticipate the impact of negative sites.

In addition to supervising the children, he also invites the community to fortify themselves so as not to become the target of negatively charged sites.

Not only that, he also invites the public to be careful to disseminate various content in social media because it can make them will deal with law enforcement officers for violating the Law of Information and Electronic Transactions.

"Be careful in disseminating content either generated alone or from other people's submissions, because if it has been disseminated then the law enforcement apparatus can easily track it even if it has been deleted," he said.

He added that currently 52 percent of Indonesia's population is very "internet literate" and more than 60 million people have smart phones or the fifth order in this world.

However, because it does not have the ability to filter the news lie(hoax), not infrequently people take it for granted and even come to spread the false news. (Antara/Frida Astuti)
