Siti Nurul Hamidah



Creating a username on Instagram is also a unique phenomenon among children and adult and analyzing how children and adult naming their Instagram will be the main focus of this research. Apparently children and adult have a different way of thinking and social interaction circle. Children could not use variation in creating Instagram username yet caused by limited social interaction they have in society however they use a combination of punctuation or numbers as a form of their creativity. Unlike the adult who has many different social circles, their Instagram naming pattern also varies.
