    A short summary of the research:

    The purpose of this study was to analyze whether the Indonesian government uses social media to establish a dialogue with its public and to participate in a new public sphere facilitated by the Internet.  The study found that the main model of government communication on social media was one-way communication, instead of two-way dialogic communication.  The advanced communication technology was mainly used to serve the government’s interests in dominating conversations, forming public opinion, and countering criticisms on social media. Hence, the new public sphere, facilitated by the Internet, can be considered as just an illusion created by the Indonesian government via their policies and regulations to be actively using social media as public communication channels.
