The research was conducted at the Faculty of Da'wah and Communication at UIN Alauddin Makassar.</em></p> <p><em>The findings draw attention to two main aspects: Firstly, the prevalence of Instagram usage is quite high among students of the Faculty of Da'wah and Communication, with an average usage of 15-18 times a week and a duration of about 9-11 hours per week. Secondly, the findings provide an overview of the low level of moderate religious behavior, with only 46.5% of respondents showing behavior reflecting moderate religious attitudes.</em></p> <p><em>The analysis of the impact of Instagram social media usage on moderate religious behavior indicates that factors such as national commitment (X1), religious tolerance, anti-violence attitudes, and accommodation of local culture have varied effects.
