Abstract

The latest advancement of communication technology presents lots of information in cyberspace. However, the reaction to this abundance of information may differ depending on some variables such as age, level of use, method of use, and so on. Perceptions of young netizens from different age groups may differ in the acceptance of this information as they have different backgrounds. The young netizens composed of generation Y who born in the era of electronic digital media and brought up in the new media era; and generation Z who born and raised in the era of new media. Therefore, this article discusses the reaction of both types of young netizens to the abundance of information in cyberspace. Respondents consist of netizens between the ages of 16 to 41 years old. A total of 1025 respondents successfully answered online questionnaires. The study found that young netizens showed a positive reaction to a lot of information on the cyberspace but should not be considered as flooded to them as they can accept and manage it. The study also found that there was no significant difference in reaction from the category of gender and age group in receiving information in cyberspace.
