But with the advent of social media, FOMO has become an even bigger issue especially for young people who seem to always be online, checking status updates and posts by their friends. So, when young people miss a party, do not go on a family vacation one summer, or do not attend the school dance, they can feel a little less cool than those who did and posted photos online. Teens can be heavily impacted by FOMO because of how pervasive it can be on social media.
Seeing posts from friends or peers at an outing or an activity via social media can trigger this, which can cause issues of low self-esteem and self-doubt among other struggles. A 2013 review study on FOMO defined it as “the uneasy and sometimes all-consuming feeling that you’re missing out—that your peers are doing, in the know about, or in possession of more or something better than you.” And three-quarters of young adults reported experiencing this uneasy feeling. Of course, people of all ages experience FOMO. A Favorite Quote from the FOMO Show: FOMO can cause the amygdala to tell us we are in danger, creating fear and anxiety. High Points of the Discussion about FOMO and the Impact on Our Teens: FOMO is the fear of missing out, being afraid someone, somewhere else is having more fun or a better experience than you are.
How FOMO Affects You It seems likely that too much FOMO has a negative effect on your mental health. People who are extremely concerned with what peers, neighbors, coworkers, or others are doing may have feelings of anxiety, low self-esteem, and loneliness. Studies have linked the use of social media to depression, anxiety, poorer sleep quality, lower self-esteem, inattention, and hyperactivity — often in teens and adolescents. The list goes on. FOMO was robustly linked to higher levels of social media engagement.
When people curtail their social media usage, they report lower levels of loneliness and depression. When people are aware of the time they spend on social media (self-monitor), they report less anxiety and FOMO. The fear of missing out (FOMO) has become pervasive in society. Teens and adults text while driving, because the possibility of a social connection is more important than their own lives (and. It’s prevalent especially among young adults in Western society.
And while fear of missing out has always been there, the explosion of social media has launched our young people. Other studies also have observed links between high levels of social media use and depression or anxiety symptoms. A 2016 study of more than 450 teens found that greater social media use, nighttime social media use and emotional investment in social media — such as feeling upset when prevented from logging on — were each linked with worse sleep quality and higher levels of anxiety.
