WE’VE HEARD OF FOMO, BUT WHAT IS JOMO? IT’S THE JOY (NOT THE FEAR) OF MISSING OUT AND MANY ARE SAYING JOMO IS THE NEW FOMO!
Before Snapchat and Instagram, we had to use our imaginations to dream up all the cool things our friends were out doing. Or better yet, we didn’t even know we weren’t invited to the party! But now, thanks to social media, we actually have the cold hard proof of the incredible lives people are living (or so it looks that way), hence giving us FOMO. Now we actually get to SEE what we are missing out on – and that can feel pretty shitty for kids AND adults alike.
The average teenager spends around six hours a day refreshing their social media feeds and the average adult spends about four.
YUP, LET THAT SOAK IN. OR SINK IN. WHAT’S THE CORRECT EXPRESSION?
The fabulous times people are having is being shoved down our throats… by ourselves.
