Digital Civility of Our Society
Microsoft began conducting a survey on digital civility in 2016 and the newly released results represent its fifth survey.
At the end of February 2021, Microsoft issued Digital Civility Index that looks into the level of civility of a country in cyberspace.
Of the 32 countries surveyed, Indonesia ranks 29th or only better than Mexico, Russia and South Africa. Indonesia's Digital Civility Index (DCI) score this year is 76 or eight points worse than 2019.
This civility index is seen from several things, such as 1) whether someone will think or ponder first before replying to people who have different opinion, 2) respect the views of others, 3) treat others with respect and dignity, 4) defend people who are treated unkindly and unhealthily in the online sphere.
