Yes, FOMO, otherwise know as Fear of Missing Out. According to a MyLife.com survey, it seems 56% of social media users suffer from this condition, afraid they may miss out on events, news and status updates.
We all know social media is somewhat addictive, and should you dare to tune out from your inbox, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for a few days, you may miss out what’s happening. The more technology allows us to stay connected, the bigger the addiction gets. The survey also revealed that 27% of participants need their fix first thing in the morning, checking their social sites as soon as they wake up. Are you a junkie when it comes to social media, or perhaps you’ve decided to give it up and go cold turkey for a while?
