In this day and age, of course there is a lot of variety of information that we can get from various media. We can get almost all forms of information in accordance with what we need. One form of information we need is news, and the two communication media that have access like that are none other than the internet and social media. With the presence of these two media, a wealth of news information can be obtained quickly and accurately in just a few clicks. However, in spreading the news we receive, there are not a few parties who want to take a negative role to create a sensation of mere excitement. The sheer excitement we have long known as hoaxes. This study aims to provide an overview of how hoaxes can develop and influence audiences, especially for internet and social media users. This discussion covers how hoaxes are created, developed and influential among citizens and their anticipation in finding information that is clean from hoaxes so that they become intelligent citizens in navigating digital information networks. This study uses a qualitative method by combining the theory of semiotics in mass communication with the theory of group cohesiveness as a grand theory and the theory of transmission as a middle range theory in the psychology of communication. The results obtained from this study show how hoaxes are able to adapt and develop in line with the shift in the development of communication which was originally in the form of conventional (word of mouth) to modern communication (user to user) so that it evolved into digihoax.
