Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta, Indonesia, cahyosetiadi[at]


The aim of this research is to test the relationship between new media use intensity, especially the internet, and the level of religiosity of adolescence. It builds on scholarship discussing the millennial generation and current development of human media use behavior. The Millennial, particularly its adolescence, often viewed as immature and unaware of religious life. They also characterized as internet generation because they are surrounded by the internet throughout their lifetimes. On the other, internet use intensity commonly blamed by its negative and harmful consequences to adolescence attitude or morality. It raised a question about the relationship between religiosity and internet use intensity in current adolescence as millennial generation. This research will test the relationship between internet usage and religiosity by using The Product Moment Test. Both variables will be assessed by a scale administered to students of Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta. It is selected as the research location for its attention to religious and youthful values. The result of the test will be discussed further to extend discussion about the relationship of both variables. The conclusions must be understood limited to the context of the limited subjects of this research.
