The Fear of Missing Out Scale is open to anyone aged 18 years or older.
I fear others have more rewarding experiences than me.
I fear my friends have more rewarding experiences than me.
I get worried when I find out my friends are having fun without me.
I get anxious when I don't know what my friends are up to.
It is important that I understand my friends "in jokes."
Sometimes, I wonder if I spend too much time keeping up with what is going on.
It bothers me when I miss an opportunity to meet up with friends.
When I have a good time it is important for me to share the details online (e.g. updatingstatus).
When I miss out on a planned get-together it bothers me.
When I go on vacation, I continue to keep tabs on what my friends are doing.
