Abstract: The use of social media in Indonesia currently shows tremendous growth together with increasing Internet penetration. However, along with this growth, fake news in Indonesian social media is also currently showing rapid growth. Social media is being increasingly used to form and signify public opinion. This information trend has been highly used by some public organizations.
    Several approaches have been taken to avoid the problem of fake news: socialization through media and group discussions; technical approach mainly by identifying and then blocking the fake news by using crawling engine Cyberdrone 9; and legal approach based on the Electronic Information and Transaction Law which prohibits fake news.

Some problems however still exist:
· The huge quantity of news in social media makes it difficult to be tracked.
· It is difficult to identify and find those who make fake news if foreign IP addressses or foreign Top Level Domains are used.
· Although the content in a particular social media has been blocked, it might have been copied and distributed through Intermessaging Services such as WhatsApp, etc.
To overcome the above problems, it is important to promote self identification of fake news by the communities.
