Snowball sampling technique was employed among Facebook users initiated from a public university in Malaysia. Instrumentations used were the adapted Internet SST, and adapted ASAII Data was analyzed using descriptive analysis and t-test. The results show that the level of sexual engagement is at low level and older adult engaged more in comparison to younger adult. The findings of this study are unlikely to be useful for generalization due to the non-probability sample, yet they remain suggestive.
