IS FEAR OF MISSING OUT INSTRUMENTAL IN UNDERSTANDING HEALTH OUTCOMES RELATED TO SOCIAL MEDIA USE?

IS FEAR OF MISSING OUT INSTRUMENTAL IN UNDERSTANDING HEALTH OUTCOMES RELATED TO SOCIAL MEDIA USE? I follow recent research (e.g., Baker, Krieger, and LeRoy, 2016; Barry et al., 2017; Błachnio and Przepiórka, 2018; Wegmann et al., 2017) showing that the fear of missing out is associated with depressive signs, apprehensive attention, and physical manifestations. Using data from Gallup, GfK, IAB, Mashable, Pew Research Center, Statista, and TNS, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding % of American smartphone owners who check their phones at least several times an hour, average time U.S. consumers spent with digital media per day, % of teens who count the following platforms as one of the three most common ways they talk with their closest friend, hours per day spent online via a mobile device, per user, the impact of technology on relationships, by cell phone, social media, and online dating status, and % of internet users watching online videos every day.

Abstract

I follow recent research (e.g., Baker, Krieger, and LeRoy, 2016; Barry et al., 2017; Błachnio and Przepiórka, 2018; Wegmann et al., 2017) showing that the fear of missing out is associated with depressive signs, apprehensive attention, and physical manifestations. Using data from Gallup, GfK, IAB, Mashable, Pew Research Center, Statista, and TNS, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding % of American smartphone owners who check their phones at least several times an hour, average time U.S. consumers spent with digital media per day, % of teens who count the following platforms as one of the three most common ways they talk with their closest friend, hours per day spent online via a mobile device, per user, the impact of technology on relationships, by cell phone, social media, and online dating status, and % of internet users watching online videos every day. Keywords: fear of missing out; social media use; psychopathological symptom
