Abstract

This study is part of a two-years research on youth radicalisme and socioreligious intolerance in social media. It is aimed to map the aspects of radicalism and intolerance; and to assess the degree of radicalism and intolerance in the use of social media by young generation. The current result shows that there is strong correlation between youth attitudes in real and virtual worlds . In general young generation is relatively tolerant towards various social groups in both real life and cyberspace, with an exception to LGBT people. The study also reveals that discrimination against Chinese remain significant though not in majority among young Indonesians.
