With the developing communication technologies, social media has started to have an important place in human life. Social networking networks, which cannot act independently from the society in which they live, accommodate users from all ages and create a ground for ideas to circulate freely compared to traditional media. Fast, technology-based online platforms that differ from traditional media also have cultural and sociological dimensions. In addition, Media Anthropology and Digital Anthropology studies also cover social media from different perspectives and examine human behavior in the virtual environment. The common characteristics of bacteria and virus-based pandemics seen on earth are that they have created a new world order based on the fears of the society, according to the political and ideological perspective. In the past, pandemics that have weakened deep-rooted states and even caused their collapse are a great threat to humanity. It is obvious that Covid-19, also known as the new Coronavirus, will have an effect in this sense. In this study, social media will be discussed in terms of digital anthropology and the role of social media in Covid-19 pandemics will be examined. In addition, the relationship between social media and the new world order will be explored in an increasingly digital world in the light of the latest developments in the world.
