Abstract

The advantage of utilizing social technology can help solve problems, improve the quality and quantity of communication with colleagues and students among universities, to save operational costs of the institution. However, negative impacts or risks that arise for organizations or individuals may happen if the use of this application is not managed properly and correctly. Universitas Islam Negeri Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta (UIN Syahid) is one of the leading Islamic-based state higher education institutions in Indonesia. Measurement of technology use at UIN Syahid aimed to increase the distribution and ability of the academic community to obtain useful information. A survey has been conducted to collect data and analyzed them using descriptive statistics. While the measurement and hypothesis testing were conducted using partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). The survey also showed that the majority of these application users intensely accessed this technology 5-7 times per week. The study results stated that the five variables, i.e. collaboration, communication, a frequency of access, knowledge & resources sharing, and usefulness had a positive effect and significant correlation to the use of social technology. To improve the institutional performance, the management is expected to increase the socialization of the use of social technology applications, particularly for the new user group of this application.
