FOMO — fear of missing out. It is one of the forms of social anxiety that is expressed in the constant concern that one is missing out on something important.
Lack of human contact. You see everything. Eyes are closed. Deceptive. Assumption.
What FOMO does and creates in the human body and mind; how and where it expresses? The performance is a study, one of the aims of which is to look at the difference between two performances after 24 hours, which are affected by insomnia, information and additional tasks.
“Rather together in social media-world; than alone in real-world.”
