Abstract

Aggressive behavior does not originate from experience but various factors, including the socio-cultures, the climate of higher education institutions [1], and the swift flow of information through social media such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and others [2], [3]. This paper attempts to examine more deeply the aggression paradox of the Facebookerswho are involved in debates as well as its dynamics. It also sheds light on how prejudice and religiosity are triggering and controlling aggression. This paper is based on theoretical studies and researches on religiosity, prejudice, and aggression, which has been conducted from January to May 2019. This paper combines library and field researches by using a qualitative approach. The data is randomly taken from Madurese students who have Facebook and actively post comments on their own and others’ pages. For the purpose of theoretical accounts, the researchers become participants by writing, commenting, and conducting conversations, debates. The dynamics of issues are ranging from the presidential and legislative elections to the politicization of certain religions and cultures.
