Editor’s Memo

This issue of Forum Komunikasi offers five (5) thought-provoking articles from communication scholars in the country.


The first article in this issue although not an unfamiliar topic is nevertheless inspiring as it can enliven the minds of the young. Aptly titled “The Role and Impact of Communication Media in Cultivating Young People's Love for Royal Institutions”, this piece discusses on the significant role of digitalization in disseminating positive values towards the royal institution as a pillar of national unity. The results of this wide-scale quantitative study involving a sample of 14,154 students at a public institution of higher education substantiates the important role of communication media, particularly digital media in disseminating information on the consequence of love for royal institution among the young. Additionally, the results indicate that impact of nurturing the young minds on this subject via the various media is at a moderate level.
