Fear of missing out FOMO is a social anxiety  stemming from the belief that others might be having fun while the person experiencing the anxiety is not present. It is characterized by a desire to stay continually connected with what others are doing. Social networking creates many opportunities for FOMO. While it provides opportunities for social engagement,  it offers an endless stream of activities in which any given person is not involved. Psychological dependence on social networks can result in anxiety and can lead to FOMO  or even pathological internet use.
