Do You Have FOMO: Fear of Missing Out?
This morning we were discussing FOMO — the fear of missing out on something that happens because you didn’t know about it.
We’re wondering: Do you think you have FOMO?
Most of us have it at least a little bit. It’s where you are afraid that you’re going to miss out on SOMETHING because you’re not constantly plugged in.
So, let’s say you put your phone away on the charger in another room. Later, you go to your phone to find that a friend has texted you asking to hang out.
Now, it’s been eight hours since that message so obviously the time has elapsed and it’s too late. Then, you login to Facebook to see — oh! It looks like it was a blast.
Now, you always have your phone on you because you have FOMO? Do you have it?
