Abstract: This study aims to explore the relationships among social engagement on WeChat, family communication, and the family satisfaction, and their family satisfaction as perceived by young Chinese adults. Two hundred young Chinese adults whose aged were 18-25 years old and were currently WeChat users were selected using snowball sampling method to participate in the survey. The data was tabulated and analyzed using Chi-square and One-way analysis of Variance (ANOVA) at the significance level of .05. The findings revealed as follows: (1) young Chinese adults’ social engagement on WeChat with parents was significantly correlated with their self-perceived family communication pattern, but was not significantly associated with their social engagement on WeChat per day; (2) young Chinese adults’ social engagement on WeChat with parents significantly influenced their family satisfaction. The findings suggested that the longer young Chinese adults used WeChat with their parents, their level of family satisfaction will be higher significantly; (3) The young Chinese adults who had different family communication pattern exhibited significantly different level of family satisfaction. Most importantly, the consensual young Chinese adults exhibited significant higher satisfaction than laissez-faire young Chinese adults, pluralistic Chinese young adults, and protective young Chinese adults, respectively.
