The relationship between utilitarian value, hedonic value and social value to satisfaction were increased by media synchronicity. The research also found that utilitarian value has the highest effecton satisfaction.If follower have a goodutilitarian value, satisfation will be more increasing. Media synchronicity help the effect of utilitarian value to satisfaction through its capability supporting the communication process that is conveyance and convergence.
