FOMO is another description to describe the way people feel when they are left out. One of the reasons this has become so popular is because of social media. Social media is considered a "weapon" at times because it can affect they way some feel about their social life. For example, say a girl did not know her friend was going out because her friend said she was sick, but then sees on social media she is out at the mall with a group of friends. Therefore, social media was where the girl began to feel left out and was worried about her social life. Being left out has always been a problem, but today with technology, the problem has increased since when somethings posted on social media, everyone will know you were not at the event. Therefore, FOMO is created.
