One new article link has been added to our Related News page. CNN published an article titled Teen ‘like’ and ‘FOMO’ anxiety.
Ask any teen whether he or she suffers from social media anxiety, and the answer will probably be no.
That’s what happened when six teens and adolescents — five from New York and one from Los Angeles — got together recently for a unique weeklong workshop at the offices of SheKnows.com, a leading women’s lifestyle media platform.
The teens didn’t think that Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat, their go-to social networks, added much extra anxiety to their lives. But then the conversation turned to the importance of likes and the fear of missing out, also known by the acronym FOMO.
