  • This study aimed to identify and analyze the attributes of FoMO, and to provide basic data for the intervention of FoMO in cancer patients. In order to confirm conceptual attributes, antecedents, and consequences by applying the conceptual analysis method of Walker & Avant (2010), 82 previous studies published from 2004 to 2021 were analyzed. The conceptual attributes were relative deprivation, social exclusion, lack of sense of belonging, lack of interaction with others, negative emotions, and the antecedents were a sense of alienation when you miss the flow or when excluded from activities and the desire to connect with others. The consequences of this were increased emotional distress, triggering negative emotions such as depression and anxiety, and decreased life satisfaction and self-esteem. The attributes of these FoMO were also confirmed in cancer patients. Based on this, it is necessary to develop an effective intervention program to improve FoMO in cancer patients.

  • This study, the Fear of Missing Out Scale (FoMO Scale) developed by Przybylski et al. (2013) was adapted and validated to the Korean culture. 3-factors were constructed through EFA and item content analysis. In the CFA, 3 models were constructed to verify the fit of the model. Compared the goodness of fit, 3-factors model with 8 items proved to be the most appropriate. Sub-factors extracted through the characteristic context and rationale of Korean culture are 'belonging needs', 'extrinsic motivation', and 'relative deprivation'. K-FoMO scale and the reliability level of each sub-factor were good. Convergent validity was assessed by significant correlation the K-FoMO scores with life satisfaction, positive emotions, negative emotions, and SNS addiction proneness. Discriminant validity was assessed by low correlation with gratitude. At the end, limitation and suggestions for the future research were discussed.

  • Are intentions important in deciding the outcome of an action such as sharing misinformation among social media users during the pandemic? What is their role and how far they are important for the very act of fake sharing news? The social media users' actions on the social platform are determined by what they plan to do themselves; however, their motivation has an immense role to play in the dissemination of fake news on social media. The study proposes a conceptual model for understanding how select factors affect fake news sharing motivation and intentions of social media users. The study scrutinizes the relationship between content and context, fear of missing out (FoMO), news verification and news sharing gratification on the motivation and intention of social media users of networked Asian society. Empirical Data were drawn from social media users (N = 243) from India, using an online questionnaire based on prior studies and structural equation modeling (SEM) approach was used to analyze the data collected. Results indicate that news content, news verification, and news sharing gratification have a direct and positive relationship with sharing motivation. On the other hand, news context and content, FoMO and news sharing gratification have a positive significant relationship with sharing intention. Likewise, it was discovered that news verification will decrease sharing intention of the social media users. However, news context, that is the pandemic in the case of the present study and FoMO were not identified as determinant variables for sharing motivation among social media users. The research limitations and further scope were discussed.

  • This study examined whether and how personal traits such as SNS self-efficacy, comparison orientation, fear of missing out are associated with SNS addiction proneness. An online survey of 232 Chinese students in Korea showed that the personal traits are positively associated with sub-dimensions of SNS addiction proneness. Fear of missing out is found to be positively associated with all three sub-dimensions of SNS addiction proneness. On the other hand, SNS self-efficacy and comparison orientation is positively related to some of the sub-dimensions.

  • Based on the technostress theory, this study aims to explore the effect of technostress caused by the use of social media during or after work hours on job turnover intention. This study conducted an online survey targeting 341 Chinese WeChat users. According to the results of the structural model analysis, role overload, role conflict, and work invasion that occur during work affect technostress, and social interaction overload, invasion of private life, and Fear of Missing Out (FoMO) that occur after work have a effect on technostress as well. Technostress occurring during work did not appear to have an effect on turnover intention, but technostress occurring after work was found to have a positive effect on turnover intention. It is expected that this study will be used as a basic data for the correct use of social media within an organization.
