"Social networking provides notification that you are missing out. 'Before the arrival of personal broadcasting technology, many of us were protected from information about what others were up to."Dr Natasha Dwyer, a senior lecturer in digital media at Melbourne's Victoria University
Defined as a fear of one’s social standing or how one is perceived among peers, and a need to constantly know what is happening and what others are doing, FoMO is most prevalent in people aged 16 to 35… while social media can be enjoyed, the FoMO it inspires through comparison and exclusion can cause anxiety, stress and, in extreme cases, depression.
Damn you FoMO.
