I’m pretty sure the majority of you have heard of FOMO – Fear of Missing Out. With busy working and studying lives nowadays a lot of us will turn a night out down because we’re so exhausted, but maybe regret it later on. Ladbroke’s Bingo survey revealed that 1/3 of the UK said seeing photos and comments on social media make them feel worse as they see what they’re missing. It also revealed that 1/5 of the UK said seeing the night out on social media is when they feel they’ve missed out the most. With Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat these days it does make you feel like you’re missing out more, because you’ll be sitting at home (possibly bored) on your social media! You can read more of what they found here.I decided to take part in the JOMO challenge, hosting a night in with £44.16 which is what the average person in the UK spends on a night out. To be completely honest, I’d pick a nice night in over a night out the majority of the time. Just to clarify I mean a night out as in going in bars and clubs, not going out for a meal or something! I enjoyed picking out my night in goodies in ASDA. I thought a night in with DVD’s, snacks and drinks would be perfect.
Do you feel FOMO or JOMO?
