Do you know what FOMO is?

FOMO (acronym for "Fear Of Missing Out") is a form of social anxiety characterized by the obsessive desire to remain constantly connected to the activities and events carried out by others, so as not to feel excluded or cut off from rewarding social contexts.

In practice, it is a fear of missing something important or interesting that is happening elsewhere, and of feeling excluded from other people's experiences.

This form of social anxiety is often fueled by the excessive use of social media and digital technologies, which constantly bombard us with information and cause us to compare ourselves to the lives of others.
