The Ecosystem is a reciprocal relationship and is interrelated with one another in an environment. Social media as a means of interaction in a virtual world makes it easy for anyone to interact. Viewers who like it will often comment, click, like, share on the content. Automatic actions become digital data that can be traced so that they can shape the communication ecosystem.

This study uses the Communication Network Analysis (CNA) method with the Netlytic application as a tool for data collection techniques. The population and sample used in this study were 2,893 comments. The result of this research is that there is no relationship between nodes as indicated by the value of Reciprocity 0; it can be said that the Ecosystem is not formed in the YouTube content. However, there are five dominant actors in the material. The message conveyed through comments attracts the attention of other actors to form 5 clusters in CNA. The relation model that is obtained in the research is one mode and undirected relationship types
