    Abstract

    Laman sosial menyediakan platform untuk berkomunikasi, bersosial dan berkongsi maklumat kepada pengguna internet. Remaja menghabiskan banyak masa dan sering melayari laman sosial. Menggunakan kerangka teori anjakan masa dan teori sistem keluarga, kajian ini mengkaji hubungan antara penggunaan laman sosial (jumlah masa diluangkan dan kekerapan log masuk) dengan prestasi akademik. Interaksi bersemuka antara remaja dengan ahli keluarga turut dikaji untuk memberi gambaran keseluruhan mengenai perkaitan antara penggunaan laman sosial dan interaksi keluarga dalam kalangan remaja di peringkat awal dan akhir remaja. Pengkaji turut mengkaji pembolehubah demografi seperti umur, jantina, lokasi kediaman, pendapatan bulanan ibu bapa dan juga latar belakang pendidikan ibu bapa yang mungkin memoderasikan hubungan antara pembolehubah bebas dengan pembolehubah bersandar. Sampel kajian ini terdiri daripada 434 orang pelajar Tingkatan 1 dan Tingkatan 4 daripada empat buah sekolah di Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor. SNSs provide internet users with a platform to communicate, socialize and share information. Adolescents spend a significant amount of time and frequently log in on SNSs. Using the framework of time displacement theory and family systems theory, the present study examined the relationship of SNSs usage (time spent and frequency of login) to academic performance. Adolescents’ face-to-face interaction with family members was also examined to give an overall view of the association between SNSs usage and family interaction among early and late adolescents. The researcher also examined demographic variables such as age, gender, residential location, parents’ monthly income and parents’ educational background that might moderate the relationships between the independent and dependent variables. The sample of the present study consisted of 434 Form 1 and Form 4 students from four selected schools in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.
