This research adopts the technology acceptance model (TAM) in investigating the mediation effect of perceived ease of use on entrepreneurs' personality and tendency to adopt social media. This study also focused on the young generation as the future of young entrepreneurs who were holding the entrepreneurial personality (innovative, risk-taker and flexibility), in adopting rapid changes of technology waves like social media. The results shows that perceived ease of use has an indirect influence on tendency to adopt social media whereas, the entrepreneurial personality reported to have a significant effect on the tendency to use social media.
