I can’t remember the last time I changed my Facebook status or uploaded a picture – it’s definitely been over a year. Yet, every single day (multiple times a day) I log on. Occasionally I contribute to groups I’m in, but usually I just peruse my newsfeed, peeking in on everyone’s lives. Sometimes I wonder why I keep going back to Facebook, but it’s a tough habit to kick and whenever there’s the hint of curiosity, I’m back.
The other day, while passively checking in on old colleagues and trending topics, it came to me – I have a classic case of FOMO. I keep going back because I’m scared to miss out on something important.
