- It really wouldn’t be a
#DigitalDetox if you’re worried about #FOMO. @osx_ail
- We have been so much involved and indulged in digital validation and constant attention that we forgot the word “Solitude”. But you’ll have that fear no matter what. That’s the challenge you’ve to overcome. Picking up is easy and giving up isn’t. @VijayMandeep
#FOMO is all in your head. Digital is dynamic, but there is honestly never #FOMO @FuschiaScribe
- One. There’s nothing like FOMO. Social media is virtual for me. I don’t exist here. But for some it is a second Life. Some people are citizen here. They give employment, they do HR (which is nonsense) and PR, which is important. So do it for sake of Goodness. One of my friend was so addictive of Social media. She ended up depression. So ne should be always consider to detox it. Seen many people advocating use of Social media at workplace. People of other chat said it increases productivity, where as in reality it increases bitching. So Dig it, do detox. @MasoomJethwa
